Melodrama finds Maria Barker (Dietrich) the bored wife of British diplomat Sir Frederick (Marshall).

Too bad Halton's next stop is jolly old England where he runs into an old military chum (Sir Fred, of course). High gloss but no heart. 91m/B VHS . Marlene Dietrich, Herbert Marshall, Melvyn Douglas, Edward Everett Horton, Laura Hope Crews; D: Ernst Lubitsch; W: Guy Bolton, Samson Raphaelson, Russell Medcroft; C: Charles B(ryant) Lang Jr.; M: Frederick “Friedrich” Hollander.
