and two short "movie poems" by Roman Koloniecki
Poems dedicated to MArlene & Gary..
Here is the part for Marlene (ask google for translation, I dare not...)
"Marlena Dietrich
Chciwe oczy wędrują za tobą po sali
gdy rozdajesz piosenki - uśmiechy - spojrzenia.
A we wszystkich się plomień purpurowy pali
i klęka i przygasa u rzęs Twoich cienia.
Ty chodzisz, kusicielska, zagadkowo cicha, -
tu i tam kwiaty rzucasz od żaru więdnące
i ze wzgardą od ust swych nietkniętych odpychasz
czyjeś wargi, od żądzy pocałunków drżace. .
A kiedyś moc tajemna w Twe oczy jak morze
i w pierś Twoia uderzy - jak fala bezbrzeżna:
wtedy rękom zwycięskim podda się w pokorze
Twój czar, i Twola miłość jak tygrys drapieżna"



5. Kino 6/1931
how funny - Polish title for the "Blue Angel" was in English "Blue Butterfly"

Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo postcad album


I love browsing the Internet for my favourite subject postcards. Treasures are not only on ebay to be found but also at small retailers and antique sellers' stores dispersed in the virtual universe. Here is my acquisition of the year 2011 - great custom made postcard album containing a considerable collecton of Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo postcards. I do belive both ladies would be very unhappy to find out that the owner of the album decided to make them so perfect neighbours. For sure, neither lady will complain today and the set is a royal feast for my greedy eye. Pictures of the stars visible on the cover come from vintage, well known Ross Verlag postcards that had to be irreversibly defaced to decorate the album. I do not collect Greta Garbo postcards, nevertheless I kept all of the cards and even hit on an idea to watch some good classics featuring miss Garbo - it was a real pleasure. All of the postcards are in perfect condition, just like every movie stars postcards collector might wish. I was surprised to find also one postcard originally signed by Marlene - the signature was put modestly on the back-  quite unusual for Marlene I think. Unfortunatelly no trace of Garbo's authgraph in the album. Many rare Ross postcards made me absolutely happy, there were also other publishers but mostly Ross Verlag. Rare Nino Za artwork in excellent condition just made my day.

I keep looking for similar finds but it's never easy - possibly it's just "looking-hunting" that gives me part of the satisfaction.


Marlene Dietrich - so elegant, so chic...dress and hat

So lovely photo of Marlene, recently found on facebook. I was struck by the momentness of the pic. It's so touching seeing the star doing usual things in very unusual fashion. The dress is excellent and hat, and all of her. I am absolutely amazed ....

Whitney Houston's inspiration : Marlene Dietrich


One of my Houston's favourite video was at least in part inspired by the wonderful film output of Marlene Dietrich. The White tuxedo and moving manner of Whitney clearly shows the inspiration from Dietrich's performances in Marocco, Blonde Venus or Seven Sinners.

Marlene Dietrich in the famous Marocco scene:



Marlene Dietrich in Blonde Venus
from 5:00 to 7:30



Marlene Dietrich in Seven Sinners singing "The Man 's in the Navy"



compare : Whitney Houston in "I'm Your Baby Tonight " (from 0:45-1:25)
