About Marlene Dietrich

Marlene Dietrich’s worldly, half-spoken vocal style made her the ultimate femme fatale vocalist for nearly a half-century. Her first major film role was in DER BLAUE ENGEL (THE BLUE ANGEL), in which she introduced what was to become her signature song, "Falling In Love Again." The international success of that film led to a long career in Hollywood. Dietrich didn't entirely neglect her music career, however, and in 1950 recorded the all-German LILI MARLENE LP for Columbia Records. During the '50s, Dietrich also began a new career as one of the world’s most highly paid cabaret artists, eventually employing the young Burt Bacharach as her musical director. She came out of retirement in 1979 for her final film role with David Bowie in JUST A GIGOLO.
