The Indian Tomb (a.k.a. Journey to the Lost City; in the original German, Das indische Grabmal) is a 1959 German-French-Italian adventure drama film, produced by Artur Brauner, directed by Fritz Lang, that stars Debra Paget, Paul Hubschmid, Walter Reyer, Claus Holm, Valéry Inkijinoff, and Sabine Bethmann.
It is the second of two films comprising what has come to be known as Fritz Lang's Indian Epic; the other is The Tiger of Eschnapur (Der Tiger von Eschnapur). The film was based on the novel Das indische Grabmal, written by Lang's ex-wife, Thea von Harbou, who died in 1954. In 1960 American International Pictures obtained the rights to both films and combined them into one long feature called Journey to the Lost City. Curiously, when the film was dubbed into Spanish, they were shown as two separate films, the second being a continuation of the first.
The film is probably best remembered for Debra Paget's erotically charged "snake dance scene".
At its initial release, German film critics were especially negative about The Indian Tomb. Die Welt wrote: "Here lies Fritz Lang, once creator of important films like Metropolis and M. The 'Indian tomb' is his own." [i.e, grave as a filmmaker] In contrast to those earlier opinions, contemporary American film critics are positive about the film.
