Flame of New Orleans (1941)

German-born Marlene (Maria Magdalena) Dietrich (1901–1992) stars as a beautiful adventuress who poses as Countess Claire Ledoux from New Orleans. She is torn between her passion for a handsome river captain of a Mississippi steamboat (Bruce Cabot, 1904–1972) and a wealthy banker (Roland Young, 1887–1953). This was the first Hollywood film directed by the French film maker, Rene Clair (1898 –1981), during his wartime exile in the United States.
