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)
