The Scarlet Empress (1934)

From one of my posts at the forum


Marlene Dietrich as The Scarlet Empress (1934)

A film about Catherine the Great's acclimation to her new home in the royal family of Russia

I just couldn't get over the idea that MD is marrying a guy who, in that wig, resembles Harpo Marx (and seems to be borrowing some of his antics).

I wonder if that was deliberate.
