Description: Marlene Dietrich never threw away anything, from her good-luck black rag doll (it appeared with her in The Blue Angel, and was on her dressing table on every movie set) to the letters (every last one) she received from her lovers, and her husband of 53 years, she kept every article of clothing made for her by the great French couturier and the legendary Hollywood costume designers. And she believed in storage. Six storage companies from New York to California, London, and Paris, held pieces of Miss Dietrich's life, locked away for decades like the pieces of the life of John Foster Kane. Over the decades hundreds of thousands of dollars were paid in rental fees. After Dietrich's death, the articles were gathered together-25,000 objects and 18,000 images. Some were auctioned at Sotheby's in New York and Los Angeles. The major pieces of Dietrich's vast collection were assembled in an archive and given to the Film Museum Berlin, and are now on permanent exhibition there.

The Marlene Dietrich Scrapbook brings together 370 photographs from her own collection, as well as photographs taken of her fabulous dresses, accessories, Vuitton trunks, along with letters from lovers and friends.

Here is Dietrich as a child in Berlin, in velvet dress and golden ringlets... Dietrich as a young actress in Berlin... as Mrs. Rudolf Seiber newly married, standing proudly with her husband... Dietrich in Hollywood as movie star... with Chaplin... with Fritz Lang... at the Paramount commissary... captured in snapshots by her movie-creator, Joseph Von Sternberg. Here is Marlene, as mother, with her daughter floating on a raft in their pool, and on their lawn in hula costumes ... at a private party withKatharine Hepburn ... Here is Marlene, at war, in never before seen photographs on a USO tour ... Marlene in uniform (tailor-made for her, of course) disembarking from a transport plane ... Marlene with the 82nd airborne ... Marlene rolling into Germany.

And here is Marlene, shimmering ... with her fellow actors and directors: John Wayne, Ernst Lubitsch, Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Tyrone Power, plus portraits of her by Cecil Beaton, Horst P. Horst, Milton Green, John Engstead. Marlene in Las Vegas, the consummate performer ... Marlene at the Palladium in London, triumphant!

With extended captions by her daughter, Maria Riva. With 50 photographs in full color.
