Ich küsse Ihre Hand, Madame is a 1929 German drama film starring Marlene Dietrich. It was released in the United States as I Kiss Your Hand, Madame in 1932. It was produced by Super-Film. There is no dialogue in the original version of this film, which was silent, apart from the title-song by Ralph Erwin, text by Fritz Rotter, that had been specially recorded by Richard Tauber to be played during the screening. Tauber himself does not actually appear in the film.


Madame Gerard is a divorcee living the high life in Paris. Her current lover is the overweight Percy Talandier but then she meets Count Lerski and sets her sights on him. Then she hears from her ex-husband Adolphe that Lerski is not a count, but works as a waiter.
