John Wayne: Screen Ladies–Marlene Dietrich, Rapport Onscreen, Affair Offscreen

Marlene Dietrich

John Wayne looked extremely good in the three movies he made with the beautiful german actress, Marlene Dietrich, in her post-Josef Von Sternberg’s Hollywood era: “Seven Sinners,” The Spoilers,” and Pittsburgh.”

The contrast between Dietrich’s worldly sophisticated women and Wayne’s shyly awkward men was particularly endearing because it brought out the best of their respective screen personas.
