About this title


Marlene Dietrich's impact on film audiences of the 1930s and 1940s was overwhelming. Her voice, her famous legs and her androgynous appearance, along with the mocking attitude she adopted towards the erotic scenarios and costumes of her films, made her one of the most influential stars of her time. This pictorial biography examines Dietrich's unique style. Her individuality is revealed in this text and the selection of over 150 informal informal, off-screen photographs, many of them never previously published. Included are features on Dietrich's make-up, her remarkable eyebrows and her use of veils, hats, shoes and even handbags. This work charts Dietrich's evolution from her early years as an actress and cabaret chanteuse in the 1920s through her revolutionary trouser-wearing in the 1930s to her surprising return to the stage in the 1960s, when she became the symbol of glamorous survival and won the hearts of a whole new generation. This book also contains the first full-scale analysis of Dietrich's recording career and includes an extensive discography spanning more than half a century, from 1928 to 1978.
