The Blue Angel (Deluxe Blu-ray)
Directed by Josef von Sternberg
The crowning achievement of the Weimar cinema, THE BLUE ANGEL is an exquisite parable of one man's fall from respectability, and the film that catapulted Marlene Dietrich to international stardom. It is presented here in both the restored German version and the English-language version (shot simultaneously).
Emil Jannings (The Last Laugh) stars as Professor Rath, the sexually repressed instructor of a boys' prep school. After learning of the pupils' infatuation with a local nightclub songstress, he decides to personally investigate the matter. But as soon as he enters the shadowy Blue Angel nightclub and steals one glimpse of the smoldering Lola-Lola (Dietrich), Rath is fatefully seduced by the throaty voice of the vulgar siren.
