A disappointer. Much of the blame is to be laid at director Josef von Sternberg's doorstep.

The film is certainly a mess at one level, with damaging fluctuations in tone and pace, and some ropey supporting performances, but it remains enough of a visual triumph to earn its place in the series of Dietrich movies.

A muddled, unimaginative and generally hapless piece of work, relieved somewhat by the talent and charm of the German actress and Herbert Marshall's valiant work in a thankless rôle.

Even Josef von Sternberg had his off days.
