Movie Info

Ladislaus Vajda adapted the screenplay for The Woman Men Yearn For from the book Die Frau, nach der man sich sehnt by Czech writer Max Brod. This German romantic thriller marked the last silent film for director Kurt Bernhardt and the first leading role for Marlene Dietrich. Shot in Berlin in 1928, the story follows Stascha (Dietrich), the femme fatale who seduces a recently married man on a train. Viennese actor Fritz Kortner plays her homocidally obsessive lover Dr. Karoff. Dietrich refused to speak about her silent film career, preferring to think of her first film as The Blue Angel with Josef von Sternberg. The Woman Men Yearn For, her 15th silent film, proves that she played dangerous women before becoming an international star. This film was also the first time Dietrich's character was killed on screen. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
