Von Sternberg took refuge in art, organizing an exhibition of his collection at the Los Angeles Country Museum. The Los Angeles Times reviewed the show respectfully, remarking that von Sternberg's choice of art, like his films, could “aggravate some people,” but that both showed “the same flair for bold adventuring in the realm of plastic form, color and movement.” Von Sternberg's fortunes became linked to those of another European émigré, Peter Lorre, whom Cohn had also signed to a two-film deal. His ideal role would be the young killer Raskolnikov in Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment. It is the story of a brilliant student who, inspired by Napoleon and driven by the conviction that a superior will transcends morality, murders an old pawnbroker and her sister.
