The Flame of New Orleans

Dietrich without mystery, in a 1941 vehicle typical of her Universal period. After Sternberg, her scripts got heavier and her costumes skimpier, and Dietrich turned from a teasingly complex femme fatale into a leggy pinup girl with a penchant for sailors. Here it's a steamboat captain (Bruce Cabot) whose he-manliness distracts Dietrich from her gold-digging efforts with fey Roland Young. Exiled Frenchman Rene Clair directed, although the continental charm the producers must have hoped for didn't materialize. With Mischa Auer and Andy Devine. 78 min.
