This 1930 tale of obsession is now mainly talked about for being the film that launched Marlene Dietrich on the path to stardom, but it remains a thrilling slice of German melodrama in its own right. Eureka's hi-def release boasts restored AVC 1.19:1 1080p presentations of the German- and English-language versions. Both display some print damage (especially the English version), but represent a huge step forward in quality from previous releases. Bonus features include a commentary, Dietrich's screen test and much more.
