No Man Can Resist Her! Screen legends Marlene Dietrich (The Blue Angel) and Charles Boyer (Gaslight) achieve the finest performances of their careers, as they taste forbidden fruit under the seductive, blazing skies of the Sahara. Featuring a sumptuous score by composer Max Steiner (Gone with the Wind), this sweeping epic of passionate romance is one of the most beautiful and atmospherically compelling pictures ever made. After the death of her father, convent-educated Domini Enfilden (Deitrich) heads for the desert seeking peace. But instead of tranquility, the sultry beauty finds passion in the arms of Boris Androvsky (Boyer) - secretly a Trappist monk who has broken his vows and lost his faith. Will Domini discover Boris' secret, and will his hidden past destroy their future happiness? Richard Boleslawski (Theodora Goes Wild) directed this David O. Selznick (Duel in the Sun) classic co-starring Basil Rathbone (The Mark of Zorro) and C. Aubrey Smith (The Hurricane).
