Directed by Josef von Sternberg | 1932

With Marlene Dietrich, Clive Brook, Anna May Wong

"The screenplay, by Jules Furthman and an uncredited Howard Hawks, has a quality of wisecracking wit unusual in Sternberg's films."
—Dave Kehr, The Chicago Reader

It’s romance and intrigue aboard the titular locomotive, carrying a shady cargo-load of societal castoffs—including notorious man-eater Shanghai Lily (Dietrich). Von Sternberg explores the emotional capacities of light and shadow to transcendent effect; the hyper-stylized look and feel somehow give way to haunting, dreamlike moments of pure feeling.
