Fab Read: Dietrich Icon

I am so thrilled you are all embracing the androgynous dressing trend! As a result, you all may enjoy the new book release Dietrich Icon, $25.

A multi-faceted woman indeed, over her 70 year career, Marlene Dietrich conquered silent films, cabaret, vaudeville, theater, army camp shows, radio, television, ballet, circus performances and Hollywood classics. Whoa - I didn't even know her scope was that broad. Speaking of, this was a broad like no other. With those thinly arched brows, that sultry Teutonic voice and legendary legs, she was a bit of a revolutionary.

This tribute to her is not only a biography but also a collection of academic essays that touch on such topics as Germany’s complex relationship with Dietrich, her ambiguous sexuality, her place in the lesbian archive, and her star status, but with fresh critical perspective and an emphasis on historical background.

I read a biography about her and it was very interesting. She is fascinating to watch in her movies. I might give this one a try.
