The legendary Marlene Dietrich stars, in only her second Hollywood role, as a prostitute recruited by the Austrian Secret Service to spy upon the Russians during WWI. This rarely seen and somewhat underrated film is the third of seven cinematic collaborations between Dietrich and Von Sternberg, which reveals both director and muse at the height of their considerable talents. Introduced by John J Johnston (UCL Institute of Archaeology) Screened as part of the Archaeology and Espionage season.
