Marlene. Dietrich. What can you say about her? Well, for starters
the fact that whether you refer to her by her first name or her last, everyone knows
who you are talking about, tells you what an epitome
of a movie star she was. Playing nightclub performers in many of her early
German films and later hitting it huge in the United States in a number
of higher caliber dramatic roles, she only earned one Oscar nomination
over the course of her career, but the camera loved her and there's no denying she's a classic Hollywood
legend -- maybe that's enough.
