Contemporary viewers who go into Dishonored expecting a musty, dated espionage melodrama will be in for a surprise. Marlene Dietrich delivers a subtle and witty performance as a Viennese prostitute who offers her services as a spy during WWI. As "Agent X-27" our heroine proves invaluable to her superiors, seducing and betraying enemy officers with the greatest of ease. But when she falls in love with Russian spy Lt. Kranau (Victor McLaglen), she permits him to escape her clutches, and as a consequence is sentenced to be executed. Ever the mistress of her own fate, "X-27"… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Entertaining melodrama that promotes glamour over telling a realistic spy tale."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"One of Sternberg's quirkiest films from his richest period."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"To try and describe Dietrich in Dishonored ... is a daunting exercise Marlene's character would no doubt look upon with a withering, contemptuous glance."
