Marlene Dietrich

Marlene Dietrich was born in Berlin in 1901.   She began her career in German silent film and then won international acclaim as Lola-Lola in “The Blue Angel” with Emil Jannings.   The popularity of the film led to offers from Hollywood and Dietrich went to the U.S. in 1930.   She had a contract with Paramount Studios and her first Hollywood film was “Morocco” opposite Gary Cooper.   Her most famous movies include “Shangai Express” with Anna May Wong, “The Garden of Allah” with Charles Boyer and “Knights Without Armour” with Robert Donat.   In later life she had a very successful career as a concert performer.   She had a late career movie success with “Witness for the Prosecution” with Tyrone Power.   On retirement she went to live in Paris and became reclusive in her later years.   Marlene Dietrich died in 1992 at the age of 90.   Her website can be accessed here.

Anyone who knows me are aware that I am a bit of a movie buff. Over the past few years I have been collecting signed photographs of my favourite actors.
