Bibliographic Details


Title: MARLENE: THE LIFE OF MARLENE DIETRICH

Publisher: W. W. Norton, New York

Publication Date: 1977

Binding: Hardcover

Dust Jacket Condition: Dust Jacket Included

Edition: First Edition.

Description:

Cloth-backed paper over boards, a little worn and foxed along the edges. Dust jacket a little wrinkled and torn along the edges. Illustrated. From the estate of Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. (1909-2000), an iconic American actor (credited with more than 50 films, including the starring role in "Gunga Din"), and a highly decorated naval officer of World War II. Dietrich sang "Song of Songs" opposite Fairbanks for Lux Radio Theatre in December 1937, though their personal and professional connections go much deeper than that. (They were lovers for a spell. Fairbanks admits in his memoir "A Hell of War" that she was "too sophisticated" for him.) This copy bears a few dog-eared pages, as Fairbanks was wont to do when reading about his personal and professional connections. He is mentioned in this biography, which reports that he and Dietrich were neighbors who dated often, and that Dietrich supervised the dyeing and curling of Fairbanks' hair for THE PRISONER OF ZENDA.
