Description

Collection of six 1930s romantic dramas starring Marlene Dietrich and directed by Josef von Sternberg. In 'Morocco' (1930) legionnaire Tom Brown (Gary Cooper) meets singer Amy Jolly (Dietrich) at a smoky cabaret in 1920s Morocco, and the two fall hopelessly in love. But Amy is a woman with a very checkered past that's always threatening to catch up with her. In 'Dishonored' (1931) Dietrich stars as Marie, an Austrian prostitute who is working as a spy during World War I. As Agent X-27, Marie is a great asset to her superiors and seduces and betrays enemy officers with ease. But when she falls in love with Colonel Kranau (Victor McLaglen), a Russian spy, she allows him to escape and, as a result, is arrested and sentenced to death. In 'Shanghai Express' (1932) notorious adventuress and seductress Shanghai Lily (Dietrich) boards the express train to Shanghai and finds herself reunited with medical corps officer Captain Donald Harvey (Clive Brook), the man whom deserted her but she has never stopped loving. Also on board the train is merchant Henry Chang (Warner Oland), who unsuccessfully propositions Lily. However, it transpires that Chang is really a rebel leader, and when his men storm the train he threatens to have Donald tortured unless Lily accedes to his sexual demands. In 'Blonde Venus' (1932), after giving up her dreams of stardom to marry, aspiring actress Helen Faraday (Dietrich) discovers that her scientist husband, Edward Faraday (Herbert Marshall), is suffering from radium poisoning. In order to raise the cash for a cure Helen finds work as a cabaret hostess, and is romanced by wealthy playboy Nick Townsend (Cary Grant). Nick gives Helen the money for her husband's treatment, and she takes up residence in her new beau's empty mansion - only for her indiscretion to be discovered when Edward recovers more speedily than she expected. In 'The Scarlett Empress' (1934) German-born Princess Sophia (Dietrich) is married off to Russia's half-mad Grand Duke Peter (Sam Jaffe), in the hope of improving the royal blood line. Forced to continue in a loveless marriage, and put up with the eccentricities of her mother-in-law, Empress Elizabeth (Louise Dresser), Catherine finds comfort in the arms of a succession of soldiers and the opportunistic Count Alexei (John Lodge). Forever anxious to strengthen her power base, Catherine's chance finally arrives with the death of the aged Elizabeth, allowing her to assume the title of Empress. In order to overcome her treacherous husband and achieve her future legacy, Catherine attempts to stage a coup d'état with the aid of the military. Finally, in 'The Devil Is a Woman' (1935), set against the background of a Spanish carnival, young army officer Antonio Galvan (Cesar Romero) is warned against getting involved with the seductive and sultry Concha Perez (Dietrich), whom he has just encountered. Although Don Pasqual (Lionel Atwill), the older officer warning him, tries his best to dissuade the younger man, telling him of her gold-digging ways, his pleas fall on deaf ears as Antonio soon becomes bewitched. When, days later, he stumbles upon the couple in the street, all of Pasqual's past jealousies and hurt resurface, forcing him to confront Antonio in a final, desperate bid for Concha's love.

Delivery FAQs

Q | How will I know when my order has been sent?
As soon as your order is despatched from our warehouse, you'll be sent an email just to confirm that it's on its journey to you (remember to check your spam if you've not ordered from us before). You can check the status of your order in your account by clicking here.

Q | Once my order has been despatched, when will I receive it? 
From the time you receive your despatch confirmation email we would expect you to receive your order:

  1. For Standard UK delivery 3-5 working days for deliveries within the UK once goods are despatched. If it does happen - on the off chance - to take any longer than this time period to reach you, Royal Mail policy requests we wait 10 working days to pass before classifying an item as "lost".
  2. 1st Class UK delivery: 1-2 working days once goods are despatched provided orders are placed prior to 12:00 (see above).
  3. Next Day UK delivery: next day delivery as long as orders are placed by 12:00 Monday to Thursday only.
  4. Standard Delivery to all other European Union Countries should take 3-6 working days once goods are despatched provided orders are placed prior to 12:00.

Q | Do you charge for delivery? 
We offer FREE delivery on a wide range of our products. UK delivery is always free over £30. We offer a range of delivery options at varying costs. Delivery to other countries in the European Union starts from £2.99.

Q | What do I do if I have not received my order? 
If your order doesn't arrive within 10 working days - contact us straight away so that we can investigate further. Please note: if you do not receive your order and you do not notify us within 30 days after despatch, we reserve the right not to refund or replace it.

Q | One of the items is missing from my order. What do I do? 
We endeavour to ship your whole order in as few packages as possible but sometimes items are sent separately. All items that should be in your package should be listed on your delivery note. If this does not match, please let us know straight away.

To give you some peace of mind, we'll be sure to send you an email to let you know when each item is on its way. Pre-orders placed with other items will be despatched separately prior to release day.

Q | What happens if I am not at home to accept my delivery? 
Due to the size of most of our products, usually they don't require you to be at home to take delivery as they will fit through your letterbox.

In the event that you have ordered products which will not fit through your letterbox, (and you aren't in to take delivery) then the postal service will follow their usual procedure. For UK orders this usually means a card is left to notify you of an attempted delivery and the item will be held at your local sorting office. For items attempted for delivery by a courier service they will also leave a card and allow you to arrange for redelivery or collection.

Q | Am I able to change the delivery address to something other than my registered PayPal address? 
For the time being, we're unable to deliver your order to an alternative address - meaning all items will be posted to the address that's linked to your PayPal account.

Q | Do you deliver on Bank Holidays? 
Bank Holidays are not classed as working days so we don't include these in our estimated delivery times. On these days, you can expect your delivery on the next working day following the Bank Holiday.
