The Blue Angel
In a small-town music hall, gorgeous Lola, who is forever "falling in love again", does a chansonette act every night. Amongst the admirers of her erotically-spiced delivery are several grammar-schoolboys. When strict Professor Rath finds out about his pupils′ dubious source of entertainment, he decides to pay a visit to the disreputable establishment himself. To his surprise, he finds Lola - despite her ambiguous act - to be a woman with a heart, and he helplessly falls in love with her. Their precipitate marriage makes the professor a social outcast and brings him ever further down the ladder of human degradation. His destruction is complete when the former scholar appears on stage as a clown at whom raw eggs are thrown. His life has lost all meaning, and, in desperation, he goes his somber way into hopelessness.
