missing Marlene Dietrich movies

Recommended Posts

Hello- I am trying to get all Marlene movies recorded on to DVD and I am missing a few earlier ones like Desire ,Angel, and Dishonored. I know the availability of Paramount releases was discussed a while ago in another thread but I could not find it again. Anyone have any updated info on possible future showings of Marvelous Marlene on TCM or any Marlene news in general?

Hi marlene, and welcome to the forums! B-)


First off, I'd like to ask you if you have or might consider buying a multi-region DVD player. Many of Marlene's movies have been released only in Europe, where DVDs are typically issued with R2 coding. That means that ordinary DVD players in the U.S. won't play them, but a multi-region player will. They can run as little as $50 depending on the model.


For whatever reason, Universal, which owns most of Paramount's pre-1948 talkies, hasn't made it a big priority to release many of her movies in DVD here. Hopefully that might change at some point, but you could be in for a long wait.


This set from the UK, which is out of print, contains all of the Von Sternberg - Dietrich movies, except *The Blue Angel* :



Available individually:
