Dietrich stars as a nightclub worker who embarks on an affair with a politician in order to pay her debts.
Dir Josef von Sternberg
With Cary Grant, Marlene Dietrich, Herbert Marshall, Dickie Moore
Forced to work in a club to pay her husband’s medical fees, Helen (Dietrich) embarks on an affair with a rich politician (Grant) and takes part in one of Hollywood’s most memorable scenes dressed as a monkey to the tune of ‘Hot Voodoo’. At this stage in his career, Grant appeared in star vehicles for Paramount’s leading ladies but it wasn’t long before the studio recognised his worth.
