Von Sternberg and Dietrich were creating a smoke screen to mask their true intentions. It was revealed a few weeks later when Dietrich abruptly refused to appear in the film in pushing the production of The Songs of Songs. Dietrich plays Lily, an orphan peasant girl in braids and dirndl (shades of Dishonored), who comes to the city to live with her bookseller aunt. Richard, a penniless sculptor (Brian Aherne), asks her to pose for him. Inevitably they become lovers, and he creates a life-size nude statue, as stylized as an automobile hood ornament.
