Though Josef Von Sternberg is credited for having written the script to Blonde Venus, the true author of the script was in fact Marlene Dietrich. She agreed not to recieve credit for writing the movie due to the obvious struggles it would cause with the hays office and code.

Both Dietrich and Von Sternberg were suspended for several months as the story was cut, watered down and made into weak lemonade to satisfy the censors. It took nearly a year before the smoke cleared. But all the frustrations and drama from the censors caused the story to lose its appeal for both Dietrich and Von Sternberg. By the time filming finally began, both director and star no longer liked, nor wanted to make the picture any longer.
