Trivia

Due to a labor dispute, the principal actors had to "live" on the set for a few weeks to avoid crossing picket lines. Marlene Dietrich took the time to learn how to play the zither; it was said she drove the rest of the cast and crew mad with her attempts to perfect her technique. Her efforts paid off, however, as illustrated in the scene where she plays the zither very competently. See more »

Goofs

In the climax where Lydia is escaping though the wilderness from the Nazis, in some shots she is seen wearing high heels and at other times appears in bare feet. See more »

Ray Milland/Marlene Dietrich at their absolute best!
23 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It just doesn't get any better than Golden Earrings! Ray Milland and Marlene Dietrich were fantastic on the screen together in this one and the story line/plot was highly entertaining, full of suspense, action and drama that kept me on the edge of my seat. It's one of those movies that will have you laughing, holding your breath in anticipation of what might happen next as well as gasping when it does!!

Ray Milland is a British Intelligence officer who becomes a POW sole survivor seeking the secret of a poison gas formula meant for the Nazis. After escaping he meets up with Dietrich who is a gypsy and helps him stay alive during their travels while pursuing the formula. The real magic though is the romance which is developing between the two. It is just so much fun watching the transformation of Ray Milland from a stuffy British officer into the character he becomes that keeps you entertained. Marlene knows that she will never meet anybody quite like him ever again and she falls for him almost immediately.

With an excellent supporting cast and the gorgeous scenery I gotta admit, I just adored everything about this movie and I could easily tell you the entire film but I dislike watching a movie someone has described in detail so I am going to stop here and just say PLEASE, PLEASE do not think twice about popping the popcorn, pulling up your favorite easy chair and plunking this one into the DVD player because you are in for a treat and a wonderful time!

In my opinion Golden Earrings is what movie making was meant to be like! Enjoy!
