According to an interview and article in the summer 1974 edition of "Focus on Film", Darryl F. Zanuck offered Lang The Sound of Music (1965), but the director opted to retire.

1948

Directed six actors to Oscar nominations: Clifton Webb (Best Actor, Sitting Pretty (1948)), Dan Dailey (Best Actor, When My Baby Smiles at Me (1948)), Susan Hayward (Best Actress, With a Song in My Heart (1952)), Thelma Ritter (Best Supporting Actress, With a Song in My Heart (1952)), Yul Brynner (Best Actor, King and I, The (1956)), and Deborah Kerr (Best Actress, King and I, The (1956)). Brynner won an Oscar for his performance in Lang's film.

1940

He was one of the talents responsible for the glossy, splashy Technicolor musicals Fox was famous for in the 1940s and 1950s, films such as Tin Pan Alley (1940), Moon Over Miami (1941), Coney Island (1943) and There's No Business Like Show Business (1954).

1937

The only time Fox loaned him out between 1937-61 was to Paramount for But Not for Me (1959). He had been friends with Clark Gable for years, and the actor was so insistent on Lang as his director that the film was postponed until Lang, who had been hospitalized with peritonitis and ulcers, had recovered.

1931

According to Lang, the gangster picture he made with Leo Carillo, Hell Bound (1931), became the first independent film to play at Radio City Music Hall.

1930

In the mid-'30s Lang was hired at 20th Century-Fox, and it was there he found his niche.

1926

Walter Lang entered the film industry in New York when he got a job as a clerk in the office of a film production company. He worked his way up to assistant director, and directed his first film in 1926. By the time sound arrived Lang was already a well-regarded director, but he left the business at that time to try his hand as an artist in Paris. His venture into that medium was unsuccessful, and he returned to Hollywood a few years later.
