Fans of Old Hollywood may enjoy "Marlene", the 1984 Dietrich documentary directed by actor Maximilian Schell. At the time she was living as a recluse in her Paris apartment, and agreed to be interviewed but not filmed. Dietrich is heard in voiceover while Schell makes creative use of footage from her movies. Despite this limitation, the result is surprisingly effective and revealing.
Makes a good companion to her daughter Maria Riva's biography "Marlene Dietrich", which was so fascinating I read it 3 times - and had to finally give away before I read it again!
