Der Blaue Engel
DIRECTOR: JOSEF VON STERNBERG
CAST: MARLENE DIETRICH, EMIL JANNINGS, KURT GERRON, ROSA VALETTI
Mild-mannered, uptight schoolteacher Emil Jannings lives a faultlessly law-abiding, by-the-book existence, but it’s all over when he gets a glimpse of Dietrich’s nightclub chanteuse Lola-Lola, and is immediately ready to ruin himself for her amusement. The first collaboration between Dietrich and von Sternberg made her an international star, and linked her forever to her seductive, world-weary delivery of the song “Falling in Love Again.” We’re showing the German-language version, preceded by a four-minute-long Dietrich screen test.
Der Blaue Engel is part of the series Marlene
