Flashback #3: Marlene Dietrich

Flashback #3: Marlene Dietrich


It is 1960. The arrival in Locarno of Marlene Dietrich, along with Joseph von Sternberg, is a vision. All eyes are on her, and the paparazzi even follow the diva when she wants to shop on the lakeside of Ascona.

Then comes the night, and her entrance in the park of the Grand Hotel for the evening screening of the film, suddenly becomes a core scene in the history of the Festival.
