At long last, the restored Josef Von Sternberg masterpiece The Blue Angel, which starred Emil Jannings and propelled Marlene Dietrich into the stratosphere, is available on DVD through Kino Video. This lovingly assembled two-disc set boasts a bevy of bonus features, and deservedly so, for this is one of cinema's all-time greatest films. One disc features the slightly clumsy English-language version, and the other features the more popular German-language version, as well as all the special features (and a scene comparison of both versions). The German version, which boasts optional English subtitles, can be viewed with audio commentary by historian Werner Sudenhorf of the Berlin Film Museum. Included are two trailers, one for the film's original release (keep in mind this is Germany's first sound film), and the other for a '60s re-release. There is a splendid photo gallery featuring well over 100 stills, including posters, costume illustrations, and behind-the-scenes photos, as well as the "Blue Angel Chronicles," which consists of lengthy and detailed production notes and no less than 41 filmmaker/cast bios. Finally, as a massive treat for Marlene Dietrich's legions of fans, her 1929 screen test for the film is included (which finds the gal yelling furiously at a slightly inept piano player), as well as a two-minute 1963 interview, and three concert performances of Dietrich, taped in the 1960s and 1970s, as she sings "Lola," "You're the Cream in My Coffee," and "Falling in Love Again." This film is presented in its original full-frame (1.19:1) presentation, with Dolby Digital 2.0 sound.
