MoMA Presents: Josef von Sternberg’s The Devil Is a Woman

In this seventh—and final— collaboration between Josef von Sternberg and Marlene Dietrich, the pair reveal much about their tortured romantic relationship, amid an outrageously sumptuous Spanish setting. This is one of the most beautiful and personal films ever to come out of a Hollywood studio. Marlene Dietrich’s 35mm nitrate print is the source of MoMA’s own preservation material.

Organized by Anne Morra, Associate Curator,  Department of Film.
