Professor Immanuel Rath (Curt Jurgens)is a martinet botany professor at a German high

school who finds post cards bearing the likeness of Lola-Lola (May Britt), "The Blue Angel",

in the possession of his pupils. He goes to the cafe where she is appearing to see if any of

his pupils are there, and spots two of them. While chasing them, he encounters Lola-Lola

and the troupe manager, Kiepert (Theodore Bikel.) He returns the next evening and

becomes involved with Lola. His visit to the cafe, and the fact he spent the night with Lola,

becomes common knowledge and he is forced to leave his school position. Despite the

protests of his friends, he marries Lola, who is intrigued by the idea of being the wife of a

professor. The intrigue doesn't last long, as Rath is unable to get work because of his wife.

He becomes a broken character, reduced to performing odd jobs around the troupe and

living off the earnings of his wife. When the troupe returns to his hometown, Kiepert brutally

uses him in a magic act as a shill to attract customers from among his old students and

friends. Lola meets a former lover and, as Rath is being degraded on the stage, she allows

the former lover to make love to her in sight of her husband. Rath goes beserk and sets out

to strangle her.
