Blue Angel
Professor Rath (Curt Jurgens) is a well respected botanist at a prestigious university. His love for an unfaithful misanthropic cabaret singer reduces him to a groveling codependent lackey. He endures untold humiliation until he sinks so low he becomes a mere shadow of his former self. In this remake, the ending is cheerier than the original 1930 version with Emil Jannings and Marlene Dietrich.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Theodore Bikel as a floorshow impresario and John Banner as the school principal perform with conventional competence among a cast of mostly callow boys."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"An ill-advised remake of the minor classic The Blue Angel of 1930."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
