Marlene Dietrich

Last week i was looking at old photographs of the 1930's and 40's in preparation of sewing some clothes for the winter. I especially wanted some really beautiful slacks. Marlene Dietrich was especially known for wearing 'mens wear' when it was still considered shocking so i typed her name into google images. Imagine my surprise when i found out that she played the singing saw. Marlene, you were my kind of gal!



Here's Marlene with Paul Laval & his Band on July the 16th 1944...
