A very beautiful tale

  • Nov 6, 2000
Rating:
+5
Marlene Dietrich and Ray Milland star in GOLDEN EARRINGS, a story of gypsies and theives, set against the backdrop of Germany in WW2.

Ray Milland stars as Ralph Denistoun, a British spy in Germany, who is arranging to meet a fellow spy in Stuttgart to steal Hitler's formula for poison gas.

Lost in the Black Forest, he meets a bedraggled gypsy woman, whom he dubbs Lydia (Marlene Dietrich). Lydia's knowledge of the Black Forest, and her quick-acting ways are things that will help Ralph on his mission. He decides to disguise himself as a gypsy and travel to Stuttgart with Lydia under the ruse.

Based on the novel by Yolanda Foldes, GOLDEN EARRINGS is an immensely entertaining and very romantic film.

Available seperately or in a box set with SEVEN SINNERS and PITTSBURGH.
