I hadn't really watched much of Marlene Dietrich before. I thought going into movies that they would be formulaic, but all are quite different and present a talented actress. Getting to experience the era of these pictures was enjoyable.

OK. Here's a typical Marlene Dietrich "WTF!?" personal-quote for you to ponder over - "I never enjoyed working in film.".... (Oh? Really?)

Now, for starters - I'm not saying that the 5 star-vehicles contained in this "Glamour Collection" were crap - No - But, considering that Marlene Dietrich is viewed by many to be one of Hollywood's "greats" from its golden age - This group of films didn't come anywhere near to convincing me of her apparent "greatness".

In my opinion - Out of these 5 films (from the 30's and 40's) - There really wasn't a single stand-out in the lot.... Yeah. Sure. Both 1930's "Morocco" and 1932's "Blonde Venus" were definitely worth a view. But, unfortunately, with each of these 5 pictures the "girl-meets-boy" scenario that prevailed got more and more preposterous with each subsequent film, so, that by the time I got around to watching 1947's "Golden Earrings" my patience had been whittled right down to nearly nothing.

*Note* - Marlene Dietrich (a confirmed bisexual who openly admitted that women were, without question, more trouble than men) died in 1992 at the age of 90.... (*Be sure to watch the revealing "Out-Of-The-Closet" video-clip*)

See for the haunting 1930 masterpiece MOROCCO with Marlene Dietrich and Gary Cooper, especially its powerful finale. (Library disc may be worn.)
