DIE STUNDE DER VERSUCHUNG (1936)

Gustav Fröhlich, Lída Baarová and Harald Paulsen
$9.99

Rechtsanwalt Dr. Leuttern ist so mit seinem Beruf verheiratet, dass er seine junge Frau Irene vernachlässigt. Endlich einmal hat er sich einen Abend freigemacht, um mit ihr gemeinsam die Oper zu besuchen. Ein gewisser MacNorris in der Nebenloge macht Irene auffällig den Hof. Mitten in der Vorstellung wird Leuttern zu Geheimrat Rüdiger gerufen, dessen Frau Alice aus einem Sanatorium geflohen ist. Briefe belegen, dass sie seit Jahren ein Verhältnis mit MacNorris hat. Auch der Schlüssel zu dessen Wohnung ist in ihrem Schreibtisch versteckt. 

The lawyer Dr. Leuttern is so possessed by his career, that his young and attractive wife Inge feels completely neglected.  When he goes with her to the opera, he is suddenly called away, leaving his wife all by herself at the theatre.  This just thrills MacNorris to no end, since he's wanted to seduce the lawyer's wife for a long time.  But there is another woman, who had a relationship with the womanizer and who found herself kicked to the kerb by him.  She went into a depression because of that and ended up in the looney bin.  Having flown the kuckoo's nest, she drives to MacNorris' apartment to wait for him and fill him full of lead.
