Description: An intoxicating mix of adventure, romance, and pre-Code salaciousness, Shanghai Express marks the commercial peak of an iconic collaboration. Marlene Dietrich is at her wicked best as Shanghai Lily, a courtesan whose reputation brings a hint of scandal to a three-day train ride through war-torn China. On board, she is surrounded by a motley crew of foreigners and lowlifes, including a fellow fallen woman (Anna May Wong), an old flame (Clive Brook), and a rebel leader wanted by the authorities (Warner Oland). As tensions come to a boil, director Josef von Sternberg delivers one breathtaking image after another, enveloping his sta ... (more)

"3.4 Von Sternberg/Yhdysvallat Sternberg/Dietrich -sarjan viihteellisempää ja kesympää päätyä edustavassa Shanghain Pikajunassa kapinalliset kiinalaiset kiusaavat erilaisista länsimaalaisista karikatyyreistä koostuvaa junaporukkaa ja Marlene on arvatenkin kovemman luokan käärmeenlumoaja. Verevä viettelijätär on pistänyt kiinalaisen kaupungin verran miehiä sekaisin, mutta vasta päähenkilömme, köyhän miehen Gary Cooper saa herätettyä pyhässä Marlenessa vastakaikua. Junapor"

"Josef Von Sternberg’s "Shanghai Express" is one of those movies that’s known less for its story and more for its camerawork. The premise is set inside a train heading to Shanghai, where Lt. Donald Harvey (Clive Brook) reunites with his old flame Madeline (Marlene Dietrich), a prostitute who goes by the cognym “Shanghai Lily”. While their romance is put to question, the express train is held hostage by Chinese civil war forces led by a Eurasian spy Henry Chang (Warner Orland), who terrori"

"3.1. Idän pikajunassa ei tapahdu asioita kovinkaan pikaisesti - ja suurin osa tapahtuu itse asiassa junan ulkopuolella. Kiinalainen kapinallisjohtaja kaappailee vähäsen, ja sitten neuvotellaan, tapetaan ja paetaan. Samalla syttyy sammunut rakkauden liekki. Leffasta löytyy jonkin verran kaukomaaeksotiikkaa, mutta seikkailun sijaan siinä on melko paljon pönötystä. En ollut hulluna leffaan, mutta ei se missään vaiheessa ärsyttänytkään. Shanghai Expressin kohtalo on puuroutua tusina-H"
