Marlene: Marlene Dietrich, A Personal Biography by Charlotte Chandler
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.0 MB
Overview: Marlene Dietrich’s life is one of the most fabulous in Hollywood history. She began her career in her native Berlin as a model, then a stage and screen actress during the silent era, becoming a star with the international success The Blue Angel. Then, under the watchful eye of the director of that film, her mentor Josef von Sternberg, she came to America and became one of the brightest stars in Hollywood. She made a series of acclaimed pictures-Morocco, Shanghai Express, Blonde Venus, Destry Rides Again, among many others-that propelled her to international stardom. With the outbreak of World War II, the fiercely anti-Nazi Dietrich became an American citizen and entertained Allied troops on the front lines. After the war she embarked on a new career as a stage performer, and with her young music director, the gifted Burt Bacharach-whom Chandler interviewed for the book-Dietrich had an outstanding second career.
