Summary
  • Tasked by studio executives with finding the next great screen siren, visionary Hollywood director Josef Von Sternberg joined forces with rising German actor Marlene Dietrich, kicking off what would become one of the most legendary partnerships in cinema history
  • A widow turned streetwalker is recruited to spy for Austria during World War I. Adopting the code name X-27, the wily heroine devotes her gifts for seduction and duplicity---as well as her musical talents---to the patriotic cause, until she finds a worthy adversary in a roguish Russian colonel, who draws her into a fatal game of cat and mouse and tests the strength of her loyalties. A story of spycraft as a captivating masquerade in which no one is who they seem and death is only a wrong note away
