Directed by Ernst Lubitsch
Brand New 4K Master! From Ernst Lubitsch, the legendary director of The Love Parade, The Merry Widow, Bluebeard’s Eighth Wife, The Shop Around the Corner, To Be or Not to Be and Heaven Can Wait, comes this romantic comedy starring the great Marlene Dietrich (The Blue Angel, Desire) as the unfaithful wife of a foreign diplomat. Lady Maria Barker (Dietrich) has a perfect life: a famous husband (Herbert Marshall, The Good Fairy), a stately English manor and endless trips abroad. Unfortunately, the one thing that is missing is her husband’s attention, leading to a short-lived affair with a dashing British stranger (Melvyn Douglas, Ninotchka) in Paris who knows her only by the name “Angel.” Though she tried to put her infidelity behind her, the whirlwind romance comes back to haunt Lady Barker when the Englishman turns out to be her husband’s old military chum. Torn between her husband and her lover, she is forced to make an agonizing decision that may change her life forever.
