Marlene Dietrich's daughter was her closest companion, helper and confidante. This abridged biography reveals Dietrich as a child, actress, wife, mother, lover and international star (although it ends mysteriously after a hospital stay in the mid-1970's and does not include her recent death). Narrator Maria Riva is absolutely wonderful. Her wit and honesty are a delight. Her pace and tone are just right. This is a loving, if sometimes harsh, though always revealing, audio portrait of a one-of-a-kind star. As an audio presentation, this is first-rate.
