Often Overlooked Marlene Dietrich Film

Started by Gary Gamage. Last reply by Serch Feb 16, 2012. 4 Replies

"Witness for the Prosecution" doesn't seem to be remembered by many now, but it may have been the best Dietrich performance, as well as the strongest film aside from "Judgement at Nuremberg," in…Continue

It was, well, one was not allowed to make photographs, which was really not fair. :( You got to see some clothes, a few hats, her suitcases, some things like her make up case, the cigarette case she got from von Stroheim, personal things.. a few letters and photographs. Of course you saw some film clips, like the Blaue Engel-screentest. But remembering a documentary ABOUT the belongings which were bought by the museum, it was much too less.

Oh!  You went to the museum?  Was the wing large? (I would feel the same, no matter how much was there, I'd want more!)  I bought the Sotheby's catalogue of the private collection which was auctioned off.  How I wished I was wealthy enough to have bid on some of the stuff in there.

Oh, I didn't want to correct you in that sense, I wanted to let you know so you won't be too disappointed when you go there.. like I was. Ahem.. well, I would have liked to see more... more... more... lol

Her sister is probably also buried in Belsen with her family then, would make most sense. Her father... they probably had a family grave, the Dietrich's, and that is where he was buried? Maybe since Marlene's mother remarried, it was not usual to bury her in the same grave as her first husband? I really don't know.

Comment by Catherine on November 25, 2012 at 2:20pm

Thanks for correcting me, I should've known that as I've perused the German Film Museum many times!  Her sister died in 1973, last known residence in Belsen...all I know for sure.  I am so surprised I know nothing about her father's burial place; her mom did re-marry, but cannot recall in Riva's book any mention where her grandfather was laid to rest.  One detail even she didn't know, apparently.

Comment by Mistress Mylene on November 25, 2012 at 1:17pm

First of all, it is NOT a Dietrich museum. I thought so too, but it isn't. It's the German film museum and a big part of it is reserved for Marlene, but there's no entire museum just for her. Zillions of things and clothes must get dusty there in their archives. :(

I have no idea about her sister and father though...   Rudi and Tamara are in California... So they were married all their lives, but in dead...

Have been to Germany, but not there :(  I want to visit that Dietrich museum in Berlin real bad.  Where, I wonder, do her sister and father rest?

Comment by Mistress Mylene on November 24, 2012 at 12:18pm

Yes, she is close to her.. but her mother is the only one in her grave. At least the tombstone has only her name engraved. The cemetery is nice and beautiful. Have you been there already?

Comment by Catherine on November 23, 2012 at 11:51am

Maybe there was no space(?) I wonder where her sister, father are buried.  Well, she's close by, anyway, to her mother and her birth home...

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
