Although he was working on a sound stage, [Sternberg] makes China seem claustrophobic, dirty and exotic.

The finished product is an example of what can be done with a personality and photogenic face such as Marlene Dietrich possesses to circumvent a trashy story.

This is one of seven vehicles where Dietrich and Sternberg teamed-up together, and it's one of their most pleasing.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

By some inexplicable alchemy, everything comes together in a seamless fusion that manages to create a haunting drama of love and faith that is like no other.

More action oriented than the other Dietrich-Sternberg films, this 1932 production is nevertheless one of the most elegantly styled.

It is by all odds the best picture Josef von Sternberg has directed.

The third teaming of Josef von Sternberg and Dietrich is one of their best and most commercial films--the only one nominated for the Best Picture Oscar.

Dietrich illuminates this stylish adventure, and it remains a high point among her many collaborations with director Von Sternberg.

The bizarre stop-go cadences of the dialogue delivery are the most blatantly non-naturalistic element, but the overall design and dramatic pacing are equally extraordinary.

Shanghai Express is a picture of the new school, and when Marlene Dietrich promises Warner Oland to visit him at his castle if he will refrain from destroying Clive Brook's eyesight with a red hot poker, you will not find the situation banal.
