Dietrich was a legend an icon of beauty and glamour whose appeal crossed all borders not only from Berlin to Hollywood as the great screen star but as the great international solo stage star of her and our times from Moscow to Tokyo Paris to Warsaw London to Broadway She crossed borders of nationality language even sex and her mystery remains as potent after her death as when she burst onto the world scene in The Blue Angel in 1930 She has been the subject of innumerable biographies most of which have served to perpetuate her own notoriously unreliable account of her life The true story has remained peculiarly elusive until now Steven Ba. Critics rave about this book and for detail and a sense of the times Bach is hard to beat He presents a great feel for Germany between the wars and how Dietrich became the immoral amoral ueen she did Excellent His writing is also fairly dense This gives you both clever and obtuse prose Why didn't he just say 'X' As knowledgeable as Bach clearly is and his pedigree and research are top shelf he still passes on the myth of Fritz Lang ditching the Nazis overnight upon first threat far likely that Lang dallied with Goebbels considering his options and his fortune And while I prefer an author with an opinion I can gauge Bach's love of Dietrich does present occasional over the top critiues perhaps the greatest characterization ever on celluloid In the end if you're ready for a deep read that does the subject justice this is a rewarding bio I've thoroughly enjoyed that presents all kinds of good and bad objectively with a sense that nothing was left unsaid a considerable achievement especially considering who we're talking about Thanks for noting if this was helpful I hope so

SUMMARY Marlene Dietrich: Life and Legend

Marlene Dietrich Life and LegendHe claimed How much did she owe to her discoverer Josef von Sternberg and what was the true nature of their relationship Or that of Dietrich and her husband whom she rarely saw but never divorced How was her tireless work for the Allied cause during World War II regarded by her fellow Germans including her family Why did she deny until her death the very existence of her sister Above all what motivated her throughout a career Bach calls one of the most disciplined and sustained creative acts of the century Steven Bach gives us at last the definitive biography the book that will lead to a complete reappraisal of Dietrich's life and work I. There is a lot of information in here and you are presented with a well rounded view of her good and bad My only issue was with how desperately the author wanted to show you how clever he is I started rolling my eyes at some of his puns and dramatic phrases but the book is well worth it He also was almost too subtle sometimes about implying who she had personal affairs with at time it wasn't clear until he was straightforward later referring to someone a second or third time as a former loverShe lived uite a life and seemed like uite the generous spirit I definitely have a new appreciation for her
