From Rouben Mamoulian, the acclaimed director of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Love Me Tonight, Becky Sharp, The Mark of Zorro and Blood and Sand, comes this classic pre-Code tearjerker starring glamorous screen legend Marlene Dietrich (Desire, Angel, No Highway in the Sky). Lily (Dietrich), a pious German peasant girl, has always found comfort in the Bible’s “Song of Songs.” She clings to its joyous message of love when her father dies and she moves to Berlin to live with her strict aunt. There, she becomes the muse of aspiring sculptor Richard (Brian Aherne, A Night to Remember), and before long their working relationship turns romantic. But Richard is a man in love with his art, leaving Lily to fall into the arms of a hedonistic baron (Lionel Atwill, Doctor X) who offers her what she now desires more than love—revenge! Beautifully shot in glorious black-and-white by Oscar winner Victor Milner (Reap the Wild Wind, The General Died at Dawn).
