Nickname Lili Marlene 

Mini Biography - Her father was a police lieutenant and imbued in her a 
military attitude to life.  Marlene was known in school for her “bedroom eyes” 
and her first affairs were at this stage in her life - a professor at the 
school was terminated. She entered the cabaret scene in 1920s Germany, first as 
a spectator then as a cabaret singer. In 1924, she married and, although she and 
Rudolf Sieber lived together only 5 years, they remained married until his death. 

She was in over a dozen silent films in increasingly important roles. In 1929, she 
was seen in a Berlin cabaret by Josef von Sternberg and, after a screen test, captured 
the role of the cabaret singer in Der blaue Engel (1930) (and became von Sternberg’s lover). 
With the success of this film, von Sternberg immediately took her to Hollywood, 
introducing her to the world in Morocco (1930), and signing an agreement to produce all 
her films. 

A series of successes followed, and Marlene became the highest paid actress of her time,
but her later films in the mid-part of the decade were critical and popular failures.  
She returned to Europe at the end of the decade, with a series of affairs with former 
leading men (she had a reputation of romancing her co-stars), as well as other prominent 
artistic figures.
