Marlene Dietrich in The Woman Men Desire presented by Neil Brand

  • St Paul's Hall, University of Huddersfield Queensgate Huddersfield, England, HD1 United Kingdom

Charles, just about to marry, glimpses the beautiful Stascha (Marlene Dietrich) on a train and sets in motion a chain of obsessive, destructive events. Shot in Berlin in 1928, this was Marlene Dietrich's first leading role and her first great femme fatale character. 

Celebrated pianist, composer and broadcaster Neil Brand brings the second Yorkshire Silent Film Festival to a red-blooded climax with this rarely-seen classic of German silent cinema.

Tickets £9 (Students are FREE to this screening - please bring current ID with you.)

Directed by Curtis Bernhardt, Germany, 1929, 75mins
