An elderly professor’s ordered life spins dangerously out of control when he falls for a nightclub singer.
“The Blue Angel” will always have a place in film history as the movie that brought Marlene Dietrich to international stardom. Her overnight stardom inspired distributors to recut the film, ending it with one of her songs, and this restored version shows the entire film for the first time in years.
Professor Rath is a strict and humourless schoolmaster who is shocked when he discovers the boys in his class have been spending their time at a sleazy cabaret called The Blue Angel, where an entertainer named Lola keeps the men in thrall and sells suggestive postcards of herself.
Rath goes to the club in hopes of catching his students but he instead finds himself entranced by the carefree atmosphere of the club, and is struck by Lola’s earthy, sensual beauty.
Dietrich introduced her theme song, “Falling In Love Again”, in this picture.
