Marie Magdalene (Marlene) Dietrich was a German-American actress and singer. Her performance as 'Lola-Lola' in 'The Blue Angel', brought her international fame and garnered her a contract with Paramount Pictures in the US. Hollywood films such as 'Shanghai Express' and 'Desire' capitalised on her glamour and exotic looks, cementing her stardom and making her one of the highest-paid actresses of the era. In 1999, the American Film Institute named Dietrich the ninth-greatest female star of all time.
