  1. Morocco and Shanghai Express.

    Morocco and Shanghai Express.

    Two films by Josef von Sternberg.
    First edition thus, comprising the scripts of second and fourth von Sternberg films to star Marlene Dietrich. Although "Morocco" (1930) was Dietrich's second "talkie" (and von Sternberg's third), it was the first of her films to be shot in Hollywood and, furthermore, solely in English: "The Blue Angel", also 1930 and directed by von Sternberg, was filmed in Germany and although released in both German and English, this last was considered lost for decades.

  3. The Blue Angel.
    signed

    The Blue Angel.

    An authorized translation of the German continuity.
    First edition thus; the authorised translation of the film (itself an adaptation of a novel by Heinrich Mann), which was shot in Berlin during the winter of 1929, and was the first sound film shot in Germany, as well as being the film that first launched Marlene Dietrich to fame as Lola-Lola. This copy has been inscribed by the actress on the title page, "To Joseph, Dietrich" - it is tempting to think of this inscription as being to the director himself, since he was still alive, and living in America where this book was distributed, until 1969, though the unGermanic spelling makes this unlikely.
