    Description

    Marian Marsh's 16mm Print of Crime and Punishment. Marian Marsh played in approximately 40 feature films, but had only one in her possession -- a 16mm print of Crime and Punishment. The 1935 version of the Dostoyevsky classic co-starred Peter Lorre as Raskolnikov and Edward Arnold as Inspector Porfiry, was produced by Columbia Pictures and was directed by Josef von Sternberg. The tyrannical and brilliantly stylish director had launched Marlene Dietrich to fame in The Blue Angel, and he used the same lighting and effects to enhance Marian's performance as Sonya, the prostitute who saves murderer Lorre (and herself) from self-destruction. The film is on two 13.5" reels, which, in this age of video and DVD, is rather a curiosity. From the Marian Marsh Archive.
