Have you guys read her books? She has two and one of them is Marlene A-Z. It's an entire book of her witty opinions and whatnot...she was a very clever writer.

Those HQ especially were spectacular. Thanks!

Marlene Dietrich always said that THE DEVIL IS A WOMAN was her favorite film of hers because she said that she never looked more beautiful in a film than that one.

I agree Marlene is a true icon (fashion & hollywood). There are some amazing photographs of her in the costume building at Warner Brothers Studios.

yes, Dietrich wasn't her real name.
Hi, Dietrich was her real name, as it was the name of his father. His father died in WWI and her mother married Herr von Losch. Then she probably became Fräulein von Losch.

And this is her real father who is on that picture.

Trivia Received the U.S. War Department's 'Medal of Freedom', in 1947, for entertaining American troops in WWII and her strong stand against Naziism.
Was made a Chevaliere of the Legion by France.
Born at 9:15pm-CET
Her estate, consisting of about 300.000 pieces, was bid for 8 mio. German marks by the city of Berlin, Germany.
Interred at Friedhof III, Berlin-Friedenau, Germany.
Chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history (#60). [1995]
Mother of Maria Riva.
Marlene's father was Lt. Louis Erich Otto Dietrich, who died when she was very young. Her mother remarried to Colonel Eduard von Losch, who was killed in WWI.
Her father, a Berlin police lieutenant, died after he fell off a horse when she was ten years old.
She sucked lemon wedges between takes to keep her mouth muscles tight.
Never worked without a mirror on the set so she could constantly check her makeup and hair.
Her make-up man said she kissed so hard that she needed a new coat of lipstick after every kiss.
In a posthumous gift of forgiveness, she left her vast collection of memorabilia to the city of Berlin.
She demanded that Max Factor sprinkle half an ounce of real gold dust into her wigs to add glitter to her tresses during filming.
She prided herself on the fact that she had slept with three men of the Kennedy clan - Joseph P. Kennedy, Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. and John F. Kennedy.
Marlene suffered from bacilophobia, the fear of germs.
Fell and broke her left leg at her last ever last stage appearance in Sydney, Australia, September 1975.
Became an American citizen on March 6, 1937.
Ten years after her death, Berlin - the city of Dietrich's birth which she shunned for most of her life - declared her an honorary citizen. On April 18, 2002, the city's legislature bestowed honor on her as "an ambassador for a democratic, freedom-loving and humane Germany." The declaration hoped this "would symbolize the city of Berlin's reconciliation with her."
Appears on the sleeve of The Beatles "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album.
Measurements: 35-24-33 (in 1930), 36 1/2-26-33 (mid-1950s), (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine)
She thought of feet to be the ugliest part of the human body, and therefore always tried to hide them in one way or another
The only show-business friend she ever had was Mae West. However, they never saw one another outside the Paramount lot.
Once said that her favorite meal was hotdogs and champagne.
Proficient on the musical saw.
She was voted the 43rd Greatest Movie Star of all time by Entertainment Weekly.
Won a Special Tony Award in 1968.
Was named #9 Actress on The AFI 50 Greatest Screen Legends
Is portrayed by Gwyneth Paltrow in Untitled Marlene Dietrich Project (2006), by Margit Carstensen in Adolf und Marlene (1977) and by Katja Flint in Marlene (2000)
Second German actress to be Oscar-nominated. The first was Luise Rainer.
Is one of the many movie stars mentioned in Madonna's song "Vogue"
She spent her last decade in her apartment on the avenue Montaigne in Paris, during which time she was not seen in public but was a prolific letter-writer and phone-caller. In 1984, Academy Award winning actor Maximilian Schell persuaded her to be interviewed for a documentary, but she did not appear on screen.
