Eine auswärtige Affäre (1948)15K
Eine auswärtige Affäre: Directed by Billy Wilder. With Jean Arthur, Marlene Dietrich, John Lund, Millard Mitchell. In occupied Berlin, an army captain is torn between an ex-Nazi café singer and the U.S. congresswoman investigating her.
“in this excellent and underrated Billy Wilder film. Dietrich plays a former Nazi trying to hide behind a post-war American boyfriend. Jean Arthur plays a spinster American congresswoman, and John Lund is the man they both fall for. The scenes of bombed-out Berlin are astonishing, and the 3 stars are wonderful in this sly comedy that gets better with every viewing. The highlights tho are Dietrichu0026#39;s musical numbers sung in a basement speakeasy. She sings the great u0026quot;Black Marketu0026quot; with composer Frederick Hollander at the piano. She sings LIVE and itu0026#39;s electrifying. She also sings u0026quot;The Ruins of Berlinu0026quot; and u0026quot;Lovely Illusions.u0026quot; Jean Arthur is also good in one of her last films. Millard Mitchell, Bill Murphy, Stanley Prager, and Gordon Jones co-star. A must!”
