This book is SO GOOD Not only does it give so much detail of Marlene Dietrich by her daughter, but also a first hand account of Pre and Post WW2 Europe and what it was like in California during the good old days of old Hollywood I got this from the library but upon returning it I immediately bought the book to have at home to reread.

    6. District s daughter writes with candor about her mother We see the good and the bad regarding their lives without betraying bitterness One of the best film biographies I have read.
