The Molander Case (German: Der Fall Molander) is a 1945 German drama film directed by Georg Wilhelm Pabst. The movie is based on the novel Die Sternegeige by Alfred Karrasch. On August 28, 1944, Pabst started shooting the movie for Terra Filmkunst.[1] As shooting was just completing at the Barrandov Studios in Prague, and the process of editing begun, Prague was invaded by the Soviets and Pabst was forced to abandon the work. The remaining film is kept at the Národní Filmový Archiv (NFA) in Prague.
