Editorial Reviews

Marlene Dietrich stars opposite John Wayne as sexy saloon singer Bijou Blanche, who's as quick with a comeback as she is with a come on, in Seven Sinners. Deported from every South Sea island on which she has ever performed, Bijou winds up in Boni Komba at the Seven Sinners Cafe, convincing the manager that she will break only hearts, not bar stools. Bijou soon charms a handsome Navy officer (Wayne), who falls deeply in love with the woman his superiors refer to as a naval "destroyer". When a spiteful admirer of Bijou's resorts to violence to keep the lovers apart, the glamorous chanteuse proves she will do anything - especially the unexpected - for the man she loves. Dietrich sizzles on screen singing her trademark, husky renditions of "I've Been in Love Before" and "The Man's in the Navy" in this sultry tropical romance.

i really didn't expect much when i first watched this movie. As many Dietrich fans will attest, Miss Dietrich is normally by far the best part of many of her movies. This one, however, is an exception. All parts are played by able actors, and the story itself is quite good. John Wayne is good in his role, even if he really doesn't have to stretch much in the role. Miss Dietrich offers one of her best, yet subtle, presentations. Her Bijou is pert, tart, flirty, romantic, and finally resigned to her fate. This movie has developed into one of my favorite oldies. Perhaps it's not Gone With the Wind or Wizard of Oz, but it's still a very good movie, with many fine points to recommend it.

BIJOU BLANCHE is Dietrich's name in this show. It means White Jewel. And, the fact that she plays a white woman and a 'coaster' (a woman of dubious virtue who travels up and down the Asian coast) in this guy flick, means that wherever she goes, she is certain to be like a blonde lighthouse in a sea of dark brown bodies and faces. One blonde bombshell in a country of millions of short, black-haired women! She's the kind of woman any red-blooded white man -- especially an American service man -- would want. John Wane sees her and wants her. So, that's the premise.

SEVEN SINNERS is one of three perfect examples of commercial American film-making. All three are Dietrich - Wayne movies.

You cannot watch the comedy-romance of SEVEN SINNERS and leave unsatisfied. It has a simple, interesting story; two mis-matched but passionate lovers; colorful secondary characters; an exotic setting; and the presence of the US Navy's officer corps. Two of three great musical numbers. And a dazzling, thrilling and amazingly choreographed brawl.

Dietrich played Bijou well. She looked the part because she never allowed the sun to tan her very pale, very delicate skin. That's why she never had any wrinkles.

Wayne was perfect as her Navy Lover. Discovered by Clara Bow when he was a football player at UCLA, he was big, tall and resolutely straight. He was sometimes seen being driven around Los Angeles by Clara, a redhead, and Lucile LeSeur (later Joan Crawford) another redhead in Clara's red Ford Model A convertible. His sex appeal never diminished, and Dietrich liked and wanted him. Literally.

And then she got him. 1940. It was her 33rd movie and she was 39 years old.

Format: VHS Tape
Marlene Dietrich plays the sexy saloon girl Bijou Blanche in SEVEN SINNERS, which, in my opinion, is one of her finest films.
She plays opposite John Wayne and Anna Lee, in a story of love, revenge and retribution, and she sizzles with the songs 'I've Been In Love Before' and 'The Man's In The Navy', co-written by Frederick Hollander, who also co-wrote songs for her in THE BLUE ANGEL and A FOREIGN AFFAIR.
Bijou gets deported off more islands than she can get on, mainly through the way she inflames men to start riots, and she breaks more hearts than she does her nails.
She soon falls in love with Lt. Brent (John Wayne) and begins a torrid love affair, and when they are torn apart by a former lover of Bijou, she discovers that she will do anything for the man she loves.
Available seperately or in a box set with PITTSBURGH and GOLDEN EARRINGS.

Format: VHS Tape
Marlene Dietrich stars as Bijou, a South Seas singer who keeps getting deported from different islands because her allure drives men to fight for her attention. As she moves from place to place, she is accompanied by Broderick Crawford and Mischa Auer. On one island, she meets and falls in love with Navy lieutenant John Wayne. He falls for her as well, but her reputation makes her less than desirable company for those around him. In the end, somebody must make a sacrifice. Director Tay Garnett keeps the film moving along with plenty of action, stunning shots of Dietrich, and lots of South Seas atmosphere. The over-the-top brawl at the end is the film's highlight. Wayne, in one of his early major film appearances, does little more than look earnest, while Dietrich is as exotic as usual. It's not a great film, but it is entertaining.

In this first of three movies Marlene made with Wayne, we find the setting being the Seven Sinners caberet in the South Seas. Wayne's part was originally meant for Tyrone Power, but it was discovered that Wayne and Dietrich had a certain (if a little eclectic) chemistry together and this made their love scenes believably passionate. Marlene is marvelous in her role as Bijou as she parodies every South Seas island siren ever known to the hilt for the screen, and John is a fine rugged counterpart to Dietrich's sultry image. Dietrich sings three songs and her throaty voice caresses her numbers with her own brand on smoldering sensuality. The supporting cast is generally good: Broderick Crawford, Oscar Homolka, Albert Dekker, Billy Gilbert and Anna Lee.
