Marlene Dietrich’s 30th Death Anniversary († May 6, 1992)

Marlene Dietrich is still considered one of the greatest stars of classic Hollywood cinema.

Born in Berlin in 1901, she starts her career in the Golden Twenties with appearances in revues and silent films. Her role as the frivolous Lola in "The Blue Angel", one of the first German talkies, made her world famous virtually overnight in 1930. The same year she goes to the USA together with director Josef von Sternberg, where they shoot "Morocco" immediately after their arrival, which earns the "New Girl from Germany" an Oscar nomination. In the following years, they collaborate on five more style-defining films, including "Blonde Venus", "Shanghai Express" and "The Scarlet Empress." The staunch anti-fascist consistently rejects offers from Germany. Instead, she becomes a U.S. citizen and performs for GI's at the front during World War II. While she is the first woman to receive the Medal of Freedom - the highest decoration for a civilian - in the USA, she is reviled as a "traitor to the fatherland" in Germany.

After the end of World War II, Dietrich played major character roles in productions such as "A Foreign Affair", "Stage Fright", "Witness for the Prosecution", "Touch of Evil" and "Judgment at Nuremberg" by such directorial greats as Billy Wilder, Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles and Stanley Kramer. From the early 1950s on, she appeared less and less on the screen, but more and more often on stage as a singer - with popular chansons such as "Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuß auf Liebe eingestellt," "Sag mir, wo die Blumen sind," or "Ich hab noch einen Koffer in Berlin". She returns to Germany for the first time in 1960 during a European tour, and four years later she becomes the first German artist to visit the Soviet Union after World War II. After breaking her leg in a fall, she announces her retirement from show business in 1975. Three years later, she takes on a very last film engagement - alongside David Bowie, among others - in "Schöner Gigolo, armer Gigolo". Afterwards she withdraws from the public eye for good and lives in self-imposed isolation in Paris until her death on May 6, 1992.
