SHANGHAI EXPRESS

(1932) dir Josef von Sternberg w/Marlene Dietrich, Clive Brook, Anna May Wong, Warner Oland [82 min; DCP]
Infamous woman-of-fortune Shanghai Lily (Dietrich, of course) is bound for Shanghai on a passenger train when she encounters a former lover (Brook) – perhaps her only true love. They soon find their rekindled passion in danger when they become embroiled in China’s civil war and wind up at the mercy of a ruthless rebel warlord.
