In what scene does the character Bauernfänger (played by Theo Lingen) appear in Fritz Lang's M (1931)?
I'm trying to figure out who "Bauernfänger" is in Lang's M, what scene(s) he is in. He is supposedly played by the actor Theo Lingen. I haven't spotted him yet in viewing the film, and I can't find a reference to that name in the subtitles. "M" of course is Lang's trolling of the Nazi party.
He first appears in the film around 29 minutes in, lying on the sofa and smoking a cigarette and then doing card tricks at the table:
