Side A. :Summary: With Marlene Dietrich: The Glamour Collection, Universal taps into one of the biggest stars of the 1930s and one of the truly most glamorous women of the 20th century, a mysterious creature of a million male daydreams. Marlene Dietrich became the Trilby to Josef Von Sternberg's Svengali for a series of exotic romances. Along with Katharine Hepburn and Joan Crawford she was declared box-office poison, but bounced back by reinventing herself in a more humorous guise. And she was one of the most beloved figures of WW2, reportedly associated with the song Lily Marlene by soldiers on both sides of the conflict in Europe. Von Sternberg refashioned her from a plump pumpernickel girl into a svelte goddess; Billy Wilder described her as a hausfrau who was most happy cooking for crew and friends alike. And unlike other film-factory creations, Marlene retained an earthy simplicity and a sense of humor about her self. According to personal accounts, she didn't put on an act. The set features five Dietrich movies: Three by Von Sternberg, one by René Clair and one from Mitchell Leisen.Videodisc release of five motion pictures, originally produced in 1930-1947.
