Marlene Dietrich (December 27, 1901May 6, 1992) was a German-born actress, singer, and sex symbol, best known for her rendition of "Lili Marleen" and her "Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuß auf Liebe eingestellt".

Throughout her long career, starting as a cabaret singer, chorus girl and film actress in 1920s Berlin, Hollywood movie star, World War II frontline entertainer and finally an international stage show performer, Dietrich constantly re-invented herself and eventually became one of the entertainment icons of the 20th century.
