Blonde Venus


USA 1932, 93 minutes, Black and white
Dir. Josef von Sternberg
Genres: Classics, Drama / Musical

Topics: Tearjerker.


Aroview: Director Josef von Sternberg reunites with muse Marlene Dietrich in this sweeping melodrama about a German chanteuse turned struggling housewife who resurrects her stage career after her husband falls ill.

In an effort to raise enough money for his treatment she prostitutes herself to a millionaire, played by Cary Grant before the world knew anything of him. Dietrich performs three musical numbers in the film, adorned in stunning costume and not quite shaking off her iconic glamour for this riches-to-rags story.
