Machine-Man Maria
Brigitte Helm

Machine-Man Maria is a mechanical being, who is brought to life by crazed inventor Rotwang. She starts out as a metallic robot with approximate human form. He then infuses her with the ‘spirit’ of Maria so that she takes on Maria’s outward physical appearance, whilst remaining under Rotwang’s control.

Metropolis – Machine-Man Maria Quotes

Machine-Man Maria carries out her role as agent provocateur among the workers:

Machine-Man Maria: You know that I have always spoken of peace…but your mediator has not come… You have waited long enough! Your time has come -! Who is the living food for the machines in Metropolis -!? Who lubricates the machine joints with their own blood -?! Who feeds the machines with their own flesh –?! Let the machines starve, you fools- ! Let them die -!! Kill them – the machines -!!

Freder: You are not Maria!!! YOU ARE NOT MARIA! Maria speaks of peace, not killing! This is not Maria!

(A worker spots Freder and turns on him)

Worker: Kill him, the dog, in his white silken fur!!!

Another Worker: Get your women, your sons, from the workers’ city! Let no one stay behind! Death to the machines -!!

Machine-Man Maria continues to distract the men in the nightclub, whilst chaos descends in the city beneath:

Machine-Man Maria: Let’s all watch as the world goes to the devil!
