Angel [DVD]

ANGEL had some bad reviews (dull, stiff, talky etc.) but it is actually a delightful sophisticated movie (what can you expect from Lubitsch?). Dietrich is very beautiful and warm (for a change) and the rest of the cast are the usual Lubitsch favorites. The DVD came unbelievably fast, I think two days. I don't know where it was shipped from but thank you, it was appreciated.

This is a marvellous romantic affair with Marlene as Lady Maria torn between her stuffy but upright British husband played by Herbert Marshall and the dashing stranger, Melvyn Douglas, she meets in Paris. Which will she choose? Dietrick is fabulously gowned, the male leads are splendid - both could do this sort of part in their sleep but do them wide awake. It is all highly polished, sophisticated and chic.

Don't get confused - this isn't The Blue Angel (Der Blaue Engel), but the 1937 Paramount movie directed by Ernst Lubitsch.
Will successful diplomat Herbert Marshall take Marlene Dietrich on holiday to Vienna (doh!) or would he rather go a meeting he doesn't need to attend in Geneva? A thin plot, forgivable in a comedy, but the dialogue is terribly poor. The part of the second male lead, who falls in love with Dietrich, comes across as an immature caricature. Yes Dietrich lights up the screen, but otherwise this is Dietrich's poorest film by far.

I found this film so so, not dietrich's best role but entertaining nonetheless.
