The Titan: Story of Michelangelo is a 1950 German documentary film. It won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.[1][2] In 1952 it became the first feature-length documentary to be shown on network television.[3]

The film was a re-edited version of a German/Swiss film of 1938 originally titled Michelangelo: Life of a Titan, directed by Curt Oertel. The re-edited version put a new English narration by Fredric March and a musical score onto a shorter edit of the existing film. The new credits include Robert J. Flaherty, Oertel and Richard Lyford as Directors and Ralph Alswang, Flaherty and Robert Snyder as Producers. The film was edited by Richard Lyford.
