Thank you Jon for this early Marlene Dietrich film.
Thank you Jon for this charming early look at Marlene Dietrich in a way that most American audences would never see her: as a young ingenue. It is a bit simple but utterly captivating & performances by Liedtke as the Count & the wonderful Hans Kiszar as the poor suitor, Chubby-Chops are equally delightful. A keeper for my personal collection.
