Marlene Dietrich! Need I say more? Seriously, her performance is brilliant, perfect and beautiful.

The unglamorous reality of the street and of the stage is well presented here.

Immanuel Rath, an old bachelor, is a professor at the town's university. When he discovers that some of his pupils often go into a speakeasy, The Blue Angel, to visit a dancer, Lola Lola, he comes there to confront them. But he is attracted to Lola. The next night he comes again--and does not sleep at home. This causes trouble at work and his life takes a downward spiral.

" Marlene Dietrich (and her legs) steal every moment in the film as showgirl that steals the dignity of Emil Jannings. Jannings' acting is underrated as he starts as a stiff pompous teacher almost being a caricature before breaking totally down ending up as a sad love-driven clown that loses both his status, job and friends to a woman who sees him as a fool. Perfect direction and technical merits too. "

"THE CLASSICS YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN BY NOW Marlene Dietrich I often wonder if Dietrich ever realized how much she owed co-star Emil Jannings. He was one of the great stars of the UFA Studios and The Blue Angel features one of his most intensely heartbreaking yet endearing performances. By all rights, we should always think of The Blue Angel as being the exemplar of a phenomenal Jannings performance. But we don’t. Most film buffs will recognize The Blue Angel as the film that brought Dietrich to "
