Marlene Dietrich: “Shanghai Express” 1932

March 18, 2012

I’m obsessed with Marlene Dietrich’s character  “Shanghai Lily” in the film Shanghai Express. The costuming is to die for – style & grace like Dietrich’s is practically nonexistent in this day and age – très déprimant!

“A beautiful temptress re-kindles an old romance while trying to escape her past during a tension-packed train journey.”
