Seven Sinners

Action & Adventure movie directed by Tay Garnett

< read all 1 reviews

A very good film

  • Nov 6, 2000
Marlene Dietrich plays the sexy saloon girl Bijou Blanche in SEVEN SINNERS, which, in my opinion, is one of her finest films.

She plays opposite John Wayne and Anna Lee, in a story of love, revenge and retribution, and she sizzles with the songs 'I've Been In Love Before' and 'The Man's In The Navy', co-written by Frederick Hollander, who also co-wrote songs for her in THE BLUE ANGEL and A FOREIGN AFFAIR.

Bijou gets deported off more islands than she can get on, mainly through the way she inflames men to start riots, and she breaks more hearts than she does her nails.

She soon falls in love with Lt. Brent (John Wayne) and begins a torrid love affair, and when they are torn apart by a former lover of Bijou, she discovers that she will do anything for the man she loves.

Available seperately or in a box set with PITTSBURGH and GOLDEN EARRINGS.
