"I have never used my body. I have played roles where the legs were used and the body was used but in life, I have never done that" - Marlene Dietrich in 1969
Interview by Jay Kent Hackleman
Marlene Dietrich was one of the first big stars and sex symbols in Hollywood. The German-born actress appeared in 50+ films during a 30+ year career. She also became a force touring the world as a provocative cabaret singer. During WWII, Dietrich took on the honorary rank of Colonel in the U.S. Army and helped raise morale visiting Allied troops in Europe. Dietrich lived life to the fullest, to say the least.
“Ms. Dietrich agreed to our interview on the condition that it could be done in a dressing room at the theater," Jay Kent Hackleman recalled. "I certainly had no problem with that and she gave the entire interview reclining on a chaise longue and somehow that seemed absolutely appropriate.” From a chaise, Dietrich waxed prophetic on the idea of sex symbols, America's youth complex, and the traps of credit and material possessions.Thought provoking indeed. Enjoy.
