Die Barsängerin Amy Jolly verdient sich in Marokko ihr Geld in einem Nachtclub. Als ihr der wohlhabende Geschäftsmann Le Bessier deutliche Avancen macht, schlägt sie sein Angebot jedoch aus. Stattdessen gibt sie dem Werben des mittellosen französischen Fremdenlegionärs Tom Brown nach, der daraufhin strafversetzt wird - direkt an die vorderste Front. Amy folgt ihm. Mit diesem Film ihres Mentors, des genialen Josef von Sternberg, wurde Marlene Dietrich in den USA zur Legende. Die berüchtigte Szene, in der die Dietrich eine Frau küsst, landete auf Vorschlag von ihr im Drehbuch und konnte auch ihrer Cleverness wegen nicht zensiert werden: Kurz vor dem Kuss tauschen die Frauen eine Blume aus, die die Dietrich dann an Gary Cooper weitergibt, weswegen aus Gründen der Continuity kein Schnitt möglich war.

Fun in a Chinese laundry by Josef von Sternberg( Book )

8 editions published between 1965 and 1987 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide

Josef von Sternberg was born in Vienna in 1894, went to America as a penniless immigrant, and directed his first motion picture in 1924. It was hailed as a work of genius, and he followed it with some of the most striking films of the end of the silent era. With the "talkies" began his long association with Marlene Dietrich. He was the terror of the Hollywood stage, driving his team to a frenzy in his demands for perfection. He also shaped the new medium in several decisive ways. In this book he is not merely reminiscing; in a series of key chapters he sets out his views on the nature of the cinema and of direction.
