Von Sternberg confirmed his agreement to shoot the Mann story, which had already been discussed before he left Hollywood. He also proposed a new structure and a different title—not Professor Unrat but the name of the cabaret where his downfall begins—The Blue Angel. Raat (renamed Rath) confiscates a postcard depicting Rosa Frohlich (now Lola-Lola) from a student, visits the Blue Angel, and is enchanted. The end of the film—in which the professor is shown utterly defeated and returns, a broken man, to his old schoolroom—was von Sternberg's own invention.
