Two of Sirk’s last three films were driven by the experiences of earlier times. The Tarnished Angels, adapted from William Faulkner’s Pylon, was a project he’d originally planned to make at UFA; A Time to Love and a Time to Die is a drama about Germany in a state of collapse towards the end of World War II and tells a story that was very close to Sirk’s heart. Both provide evidence of a filmmaker working at the peak of his art.
