The Flame of New Orleans Photos

Movie Info

Claire (Marlene Dietrich) is a French woman in search of a rich husband in 1841 New Orleans. She decides the best way to lure a wealthy suitor is to masquerade as a countess, and soon she attracts two prosperous possible partners (Roland Young, Bruce Cabot). But her ruse risks unraveling when an old associate (Mischa Auer) appears, dropping hints of her salacious past. To rebuff his sabotage, Claire invents a troubled cousin, then impersonates her, adding a new persona to her subterfuge.

Critic Reviews for The Flame of New Orleans

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2)

  • With every picture now, Marlene Dietrich grows more and more a comic. I mean it in the most delightful and flattering sense, for the lady is very droll indeed, and charming also, in The Flame of New Orleans.

  • The story is appealing, the direction is magnificent, and the photography is excellent. [Full review in Spanish]
