(aka 'Amy Jolly')

Directed by Josef von Sternberg
USA 19
30

 

  Von Sternberg's first Hollywood picture, and his second collaboration with Dietrich (they first worked together on The Blue Angel). Dietrich vamps it up again as the mysterious Amy Jolly who runs away from her past with a one-way ticket to Morocco. Menjou is the poor sap around whom she runs rings, and Cooper gives a subtle performance as the Foreign Legionnaire she really loves. OK, so the plot is pure melodrama, but it's Dietrich the eye is drawn to. She sizzles with a heat and passion that completely upstage just about everyone and everything else. Who could forget the sight of Marlene as the nightclub singer Amy, clad in a tuxedo, planting a kiss on the lips of another woman? Stuffed to the gills with wonderfully silly melodrama, smoky bars and passionate embraces, it's a great film and a fine example of the magic woven by the extraordinary partnerships of Sternberg-Dietrich and Dietrich-Cooper.

Comments:

This is by no means a pristine transfer but it appears to be free of digital manipulations and has some nice film grain. The image is dark and a little cloudy but that seems to follow the atmosphere of the film. Audio is likewise a bit weak, but I am thrilled that optional English subtitles are included, although they don't always follow the literal translation of the dialogue all the time (actually more elaborate sometimes). No extras save some German text screens and an advert for Süddeutsche Zeitung. 

Great to have this pure stylish film in my library. Dietrich just drips off the screen. The price tag of about $12 US makes it a very desirable purchase.  

NOTE: (Thanks Pavel!)- It is issued by Süddeutsche Zeitung, one of the biggest German newspapers, in their series Cinemathek. This series should contain 50 DVDs, one DVDs issued each week, mostly reissues of movies previously issued by different companies (not in the case of Morocco). Süddeutsche Zeitung also has similar Bibliothek and Diskothek series.
