More Info IMDb

Part of the series SHE DIED WITH HER BOOTS ON: WOMEN AND THE WEST

In this perversely stylized cult masterpiece from Fritz Lang, Marlene Dietrich serves as the matron to a Wild West criminal hideout, cowing, browbeating, and defying every man in sight. A gunslinger intrudes, looking for the killer of his fiancee, as an insistently repeated theme song pounds out a quintessential Lang chorus of “hate, murder, and revenge.” Expansive Western exteriors are traded for roiling psychological interiors and Dietrich towers over everything. HATE, MURDER, and REVENGE! 

Screening in 35mm
