Movie Review: Blonde Venus (1932)

The Movie:  10 (on a scale of -10 to 10).  A husband and wife live out the consequences of the way she earned money to pay for his life-saving medical treatment.  Marlene Dietrich is amazing as always, the cinematography is stellar, and the story is well-told.  Such a brilliant exploration of how shortsighted and destructive masculine pride can be. 

The Fashions:  8 (on a scale of 1 to 10).  Marlene Dietrich sure has some amazing stage costumes.  Genius.
