Golden Earrings ★★½ 1947

Enjoyable, yet incredulous story about British agent Milland joining up with gypsy Diet rich for espionage work. Absurd film was so bad it became a camp classic over night. Although Dietrich and Milland couldn't stand each other and battled con stantly during production, the movie did quite well at the boxoffice. Based on a novel by Yolanda Foldes. 95m/B VHS, DVD . Ray Milland, Marlene Dietrich, Bruce Lester, Dennis Hoey, Quentin Reynolds, Reinhold Schunzel, Ivan Triesault; D: Mitchell Leisen; W: Abraham Polonsky, Frank Butler, Helen Deutsch; C: Daniel F. Fapp.
