Poor Ruth Leuwerik - poor viewer
19 July 2004 | by (Hannover) – See all my reviews

A creaky old melodrama of a young woman accused of accidental killing, 'Dorothea Angermann' was DOA. Based on an ancient and trite stage-shocker, that was old, when Bismarck was a young lad, the story is told in such an uninspired way that even Miss Leuwerik's most ardent fans will have a rough time to watch it to the end. The pic seems to last forever and has virtually no saving grace. Even Ruth Leuwerik, normally a talented actress of great warmth and natural beauty is defeated by the shrill and illogical plot.

The pic turned out to be a horrible box-office dud and hastened Miss Leuwerik's demise as a star.

If you want to see good entertainment, watch out for the similar story in 'The Kiss', Garbo's last silent and far superior to this trashy and shoddy melodrama. Or rent yourself 'The Accused', with lovely Loretta Young giving one of her best performances ever.
