Der blaue Engel

Josef von Sternberg Germany, 1930

Lorna Singh's rating of the film The Blue Angel

It is easy to see why this classic made Marlene Dietrich an international star.Emil Jannings is simply superb,making the last tragic,humiliating few minutes unforgettable. And 'Falling In Love' is one of the best songs ever written for a film.
