There were her artistic relationships with Josef von Sternberg The Blue Angle, Morocco, Shanghai Express), Colette, Erich Maria Remarque, Noel Coward and Cole Porter, and her heady romances. In her final years, she would make herself visibly invisible, devoting herself to the immortality of her legend. Marlene Dietrich: The Life is captures this complex and astonishing woman.
