The Copper (1930 film)

The Copper or The Grasper (German: Der Greifer) is a 1930 British-German crime film directed by Richard Eichberg and starring Hans Albers, Charlotte Susa and Margot Landa. It is the German-language version of the British film Night Birds, which was also directed by Eichberg but with an English-speaking cast. Both films were made by British International Pictures at their Elstree Studios at a time when such multiple-language versions were common.
