A Day With Dietrich

Tutor: Catherine Constable (Professor of Film Studies at Warwick University)

Marlene Dietrich was one of the most famous film stars of the 1930s.  She made the transition from Germany to Hollywood along with her long-time collaborator, the director Josef von Sternberg.  Paramount Studios marketed Dietrich as a rival to MGM’s Greta Garbo.

The day will start with a talk about her star persona and distinctive style and the special lighting system developed for her by Lee Garmes.  This will be followed by a double bill of film screenings, beginning with Blonde Venus (Josef von Sternberg, 1932) and ending with the comedy western Destry Rides Again (George Marshall, 1939).

Tutor: Catherine Constable (Professor of Film Studies at Warwick University)

Sandwiches and refreshments will be available at the theatre.
