What filmmaker was offered "honorary Aryan" status by Joseph Goebbels despite his Jewish background?
Much to Fritz Lang's dismay, Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels were big fans of his 1927 film Metropolis. Goebbels met with Lang and told him that he could be made an honorary Aryan despite his Jewish background. Goebbels told him "Mr Lang, we decide who is Jewish and who is not". Lang fled to Paris that very night.
