Happy Birthday Marlene Dietrich: my posts about her

Today I noticed I've written a lot about Marlene and her movies:

-- I reviewed Manpower, a very good drama with Edward G. Robinson.

-- A very ridiculous movie, The Garden of Allah, was described IN MY OWN WORDS.

-- From her collaborations with director Josef von Sternberg I've seen 6/7 and reviewed two: one of the creepiest movies I've ever seen, The Scarlett Empress and the entertaining Dishonored, which has an awesome ending.

-- I talked about two underrated films by interesting director Mitchell Leisen: The Lady is willing with Fred MacMurray and Golden Earrings with Ray Milland. 

-- I also mentioned her elegant cameo in Paris When it Sizzles.

-- I wrote a haiku about Morocco with Gary Cooper.

-- And she was also part of the poll Actresses that make you laugh the most and got more votes than Barbara Stanwyck. 

Well, that's it :)


  1. What a fun way to celebrate her birthday! ^^

  2. Clara, I could have sworn I'd left you a comment on your wonderful past Marlene Dietrich posts, but it's always great to see them again. It's a great way to celebrate Dietrich's birthday; I myself put on TCM to enjoy my own favorite Dietrich performance, Christine Vole in WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION! Thanks for sharing them with us to enjoy again!

    If you're interested in more Marlene anecdotes, I have an anecdote about my dear late mom meeting the fabulous Ms. Dietrich in my Mother's Day blog post, "Dorian’s Mother’s Day Smorgasbord: a Four-Course Meal of Fiction, Food, and Fond Memories." Look for the "Third Course" vignette, titled "When Mom Met Marlene." Hope you enjoy it!

    Happy New Year, Clara, and here's to 2012 being a great year for you and yours all of us Via Margutta readers!

  3. Kailey: Thank you, I'm glad you liked it!

    Dorian: WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION is one of my favorites! So awesome, what a terrific performance!
    Thank you so much for sharing that anecdote about your mom meeting Marlene!! That was sooo awesome to read :) Happy New Year to you too!
