tJ/ MOACHROME ILM
FOR YOUR fall Aovie Dirr

Love's always been my game,
play it how I may,
I was made that way, I can't
help it.
FASHION magazine photograph-.
ers, who idealize the high-
cheekboned, blond model, with a
cold, mask-like face, thin, arched
eyebrows, and introspective, bor-
ed - with - the - world expressions,
can find their prototype in the
woman who has been singing the
above lyrics for the past quarter
century.
Marlene Dietrich, the personi-
fication of eternal femininity, has
probably influenced American
womanhood more strongly than
any other single personality. You
may not find her in the smiling,
bright young girl on the tooth-
paste advertisement, but you are
sure to observe some aspect of her
universally accepted character in
the sureness of the dress model,
in the coldness of the girl who
sells nail polish, or in the con-
tempt of the human mannequin
trying to produce a revolution in
women's hats.
Her passion for trousers have
brought slacks into vogue. Her,
arched eyebrows, hair styles, and
long fingernails have started fash-
ion trends. And her high cheek-
bones are now considered the ulti-
mate in womanly sophistication.
REGARDLESS of what the real
Dietrich is like, the public
Dietrich is a carefully fashioned
romantic legend, designed to func-
tionalize the belief that glamour
is not inherited, "it is a business."
And the public Dietrich is the only
one that counts.
Glamour has always been a
business with Dietrich. She has
been selling her personality for a

quarter century, and, while it has
not always given her a continu-
ous popularity, it has brought a
continuing popularity.
To the average man or woman
who sees her films or buys her re-
cords, she represents a myth about
womanhood, the perpetually de-
sired woman who is, as Ernest
Hemingway has written of her,
".. . brave, beautiful, loyal, kind
and generous. She is never bor-
ing and is as lovely looking in the
morning ... as she is at night .. .
If she had nothing more than her
voice, she could break your heart
with it. But she has that beauti-
ful body and that tender loveli-
ness of her face."
NO ONE can say for sure just
what Dietrich's real name is
and no one is quite certain of
where her husband of three de-
cades really is. Nor are there any
accurate details about her life
before she began assaulting the
tower of fame in 1930 with "The
Blue Angel." It is on such a diet
that legend grows, and it is upon
such obscure materials that leg-
end flowers bloom.
The Dietrich personality, evolv-
ed by her director of six years, Jo-
sef Von Sternberg, has always been
sufficient to offset any other de-
fects in the lady's entertainment
talents.
Her pictures, for the most part
mediocre melodramas in which
virile men fight over a shady lady,
were most often considered poor
cinematic products when first re-
leased. Now, many of them pass
as film art.
DIETRICH is a man's woman.
