In 'Marlene', Hollywood legend Marlene Dietrich is vividly brought to life. In the mid-1970s Charlotte Chandler interviewed the reclusive actress in Dietrich's Paris apartment. The star's career was all but over, but she agreed to meet because Chandler hadn't known her earlier, "when [Dietrich] was young and very beautiful." 'Marlene' is further enriched by Chandler's interviews with others who knew Dietrich well, including Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., and Burt Bacharach.
Marlene Dietrich lived an extraordinary life, and Marlene relies extensively on the star's own words to reveal how intriguing and fascinating that life really was.
