Happy Holidays, Marlene Dietrich

Published: 12/27/2011
Marlene Dietrich was a Christmas-season baby, born on December 27, 1901. I've got a couple of those in my own family, so I know about the heartbreak that comes with the combined "Christmas and birthday" gift. Here's hoping that the great star of stage and screen never had to double up on her holidays.

Thanks to this lovely holiday montage, we can remember both Christmas and Marlene Dietrich's birthday at the same time. Merry Christmas!

And a Happy New Year!
