Synopsis

Immanuel Rath, an old bachelor, is a professor at the town’s university. When he discovers that some of his pupils often go into a speakeasy, The Blue Angel, to visit a dancer named Lola Lola, he comes there to confront them, but meets Lola herself…

Our take

Over seven films, director Josef von Sternberg and actress Marlene Dietrich traced a path of lush, scandalous romantic fantasies from Germany to Hollywood. The Blue Angel, their first film together, made Marlene a star overnight.
