Blonde Venus

Marlene Dietrich was born in Berlin-Schoneberg in 1901. She began acting at the age of 21 with her first lead role seven years later. She didn't move to America until she was 28 and made her first American film that same year.

Dietrich performed for American troops, on stage, in cabarets, and on film. A busy and beautiful woman who passed peacefully in her sleep in 1992.

  1. Look at those cheekbones! I had this literature professor in college who was in LOVE with this woman. We watched about 4 of her movies in class, and I think we all fell a little bit in love, too.
