One of the most popular Marlene Dietrich-Josef von Sternberg collaborations, "Blonde Venus" tells of a woman accepting money from a playboy (Cary Grant) to finance a treatment for her husband's (Herbert Marshall) terminal illness and the struggles that arise from the gift. Highlights include Dietrich singing "Hot Voodoo" in an ape suit and a luminous New Orleans bordello sequence that matches anything Sternberg has shot.
