This is basically a coffee table book, which includes a great many glossy stills from Marlene Dietrich's movie career, as well as a few from her live shows. Also included are an array of movie posters. The book contains a number of interesting quotes from the lady herself, as well as people who knew or worked with her. There is a little bit of biographical text, as well as brief explanatory notes about the stills and photographs. All text is in three languages: English, German, and French.

Ein wirklich tolles Buch!! Sehr geil, wuerd' ich es jedem empfehlen!! :)
