The Garden Cinema looks back at the extraordinary Marlene Dietrich, alluring for both her beauty and her remarkable self-assurance on screen. She made such an impression in 1930 as the seductive cabaret singer in The Blue Angel that she was immediately brought to Hollywood by her svengali director, Josef von Sternberg. And when she donned a man’s tailcoat and trousers in another von Sternberg film of the same year, Morocco, she became a cinematic icon.
This season shows how she developed as an actress from the early films with von Sternberg, to her more playful roles with director George Marshall and her cold-hearted role as Christine in Billy Wilder’s 1957 Witness for the Prosecution. Join us in celebrating Marlene Dietrich – a star unlike any other.
