1927, Sud-Film, 91 min, Germany, Dir: Gustav Ucicky

Wealthy party girl Erni (Marlene Dietrich) and purse snatcher Ferdi (Willi Forst) meet one night at the infamous Café Electric, a local haunt for the lower depths of society. Erni is more smitten than the duplicitous Ferdi, and agrees to help him pay off his sizable gambling debt - by stealing from her successful contractor father. This early Dietrich gem is not to be missed!
