Marlene Dietrich as Blanche Ferrand in Filmjournalen

Johannakatt has shared a few pages from the now-defunct Swedish publication, Filmjournalen, which included a spread on Martin Roumagnac (English title: The Room Upstairs), Marlene Dietrich's 1946 film with Jean Gabin. Johannakatt has also indicated that the title is incorrectly called Passion, but IMDB does indeed list Passion as the film's Swedish title.

If you compare the image to the right with the images at johannakatt's blog, note that illustrators rarely did the stars justice. Dietrich would have never allowed her face to be lit looking greasy and sweaty, as this poster depicts. Perspiration requires pores, and Dietrich obviously lacked such unphotogenic human organs.
