Scarlett Empress (1934)
A spectacular production which should have been showered with Oscars. Every aspect of film-making is employed to tell the dramatic tale. The design of the magnificent sets is employed, along with all the other film-makers arts, to tell the tale. There is not a patch of blank canvas. All the characters are vividly drawn, in gigantic form even larger than life. The costumes are magnificent and probably the best of any of the movies of the era of the great costumiers.
Marlene Dietrich wears more magnificent costumes than in any of her movies. The Hussars wear one of the best representations of a Hussar's uniform in motion picture, complete with Pelisse and the long braids in the hair.
Marlene herself wears such a costume (in white) in the closing scene of the motion picture.
There is no location shooting, save for one long shot of her carriage on the road.
