Dietrich plays a prostitute from Vienna during World War I who is recruited to expose a double-agent spy ring that is supplying information to the Russians. Dietrich again is great in this film, stealing every scene she is in, although she is almost outdone by her delightful black cat. In this movie she has a rare comedic part at one point. The story is weak in parts,…
