Marlene Dietrich - Ultimate Gay Icon @ The Cinema Museum | England | United Kingdom

Marlene Dietrich has been a favourite gay icon for both men and women over several generations. In this highly-praised show, Terry Sanderson explores her extraordinary life and career. From her start in the ‘divinely decadent’ cabarets of Weimar Berlin, where she enthusiastically embraced the liberated sexual attitudes of the time, to superstardom in Hollywood and a stunning career on the concert stage. Along the way she became a medal-winning war hero, abandoning her native Germany in order to fight her own war against the Nazis.
We’ll have generous clips from her campest movies, rare archive film of her war exploits and a showing, in full on a big screen, of her fabulous one-woman show – which is a once-seen never forgotten experience.
Marlene never made a secret of her sexual preferences and her heroic story is a perfect Pride treat.
