Legendary Marlene Dietrich was a formidable actress, style icon, stage and cabaret star, Dietrich was unconventional, original and beautiful. She elevated the androgynous style into an art form.
Obsession: Marlene Dietrich : The Pierre Passebon Collection uses rare photographs of the actress from the collection of Parisian tastemaker Pierre Passebon. The interview with Passebon in the book demonstrates his obsession with the actress, one which stretched far before he started his incredible photographic collection. The book is a beautiful mini coffee table tome with many double page spreads of images of the actress running throughout her career. The images include rare stills from her movies, including the iconic Blue Angel image shown in both a censored and uncensored version. There are also images from her public life which show off her androgynous style, something that was quite shocking in the 1930s in Hollywood. There are publicity stills taken by legendary photographers like Cecil Beaton, Milton Greene, Irving Penn and Edward Steichen amongst many more illustrious names. The images are all in atmospheric black and white, just adding to the allure and glamour of the golden age. The book is as stylish and glamorous as the actress herself, beautiful enough to have on display, small enough to be able to keep it in your bag to read on the train home. It captures the essence of a woman who was utterly modern and non conforming, and yet managed to have Hollywood eating out of her hands, creating an indelible legend that will never fade.
