"Marlene Dietrich sings in a Berlin dive in A Foreign Affair as Erika, a former playmate of the Nazi bigwigs, who comes over to the winning side. She evokes again the unforgettable image from The Blue Angel - the husky-voiced charmer with the wonderful black-clad legs and the long black garters - who cast a spell on American audiences seventeen years ago, when Mary Magdalene von Losch had only recently become Marlene Dietrich."
