Marlene

July 8

Chanteuse and actress, archetypal Berliner and ardent American antifascist, brooding sex symbol and willful camp icon, a paragon of feminine glamor who was as comfortable in top hat and tails or gorilla suit as in a ballgown—come fall in love again with Marlene Dietrich, a figure whose complex, bi-amorous screen persona contained multitudes. Working with the likes of Fritz Lang, Billy Wilder, Orson Welles, Frank Borzage, Alfred Hitchcock, Mitchell Leisen, and, of course, intimate collaborator Josef von Sternberg, she was never less than her inimitable, beguiling self, a prismatic personage whose many glittering facets will be on display at Metrograph.
