From the library of Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., and inscribed to him by the author, "For Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Thank you for your help -- With Admiration and Gratitude, and In Memory of dear Marlene -- Eryk Hanut / May 96." Sir Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. (1909-2000) was an iconic American actor (credited with more than 50 films, including the starring role in "Gunga Din"), and a highly decorated naval officer of World War II. Dietrich sang "Song of Songs" opposite Fairbanks for Lux Radio Theatre in December 1937, though their personal and professional connections go much deeper than that. (They were lovers for a spell. Fairbanks admits in his memoir "A Hell of War" that she was "too sophisticated" for him.) A nice association copy, linking the two legends of Hollywood's Golden Era. N° de ref. de la librería JC2722

Reseña del editor:

A unique blend of memoir and literary portraiture, I Wish You Love: Conversations with Marlene Dietrich is a moving account of the author's remarkable friendship with one of Hollywood's greatest legends.
As a young man living in Paris in the 1980s, Eryk Hanut on a whim wrote the by-then reclusive Dietrich after seeing her films and hearing her songs. To his surprise, she telephoned him a few days later, ushering in a surprisingly intimate friendship that encompassed the last years of her life. In their frequent conversations, Dietrich shared her thoughts on a wide range of topics - from art and literature to haute couture, her film and singing career, her striking persona and image, Hollywood, and the epochal events of the twentieth century through which she had lived. Dietrich reveals herself as a woman of wisdom, wit, and acute sensitivity, offering insights into life, love, and loneliness. I Wish You Love is an affectionate portrait of this enigmatic, legendary figure, and a moving record of an extraordinary friendship.
I Wish You Love features twenty-two evocative black-and-white photographs of the many faces of Dietrich by the great Hollywood glamour photographers, from the author's personal collection and autographed in Dietrich's distinctive hand.
