230 pages of Marlene Dietrich FBI files copied from FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and archived on CD-ROM

Marlene Dietrich was born on December 29, 1904, as Mary Magdalene Von Losch in Berlin, Germany. After establishing a singing and acting career in Germany, she came to the United States in the early 1930's. She was nominated for an Academy Award for her first American movie role in the film Morocco. Marlene Dietrich's American acting career included the films Touch of Evil, Judgment at Nuremberg, Witness for the Prosecution, Around the World in Eighty Days, and A Foreign Affair. Dietrich became an American citizen in 1937. Marlene Dietrich died in Paris, of kidney failure, at the age of 90.

The file contains approximately 200 discernable pages. The files date from 1935 to 1948. Subject matters include: Documentation of an FBI investigation started in 1942, because of a rumor that Dietrich was apart of a German collaboration movement in United States and France. Dietrich's tax problems. Information from Dietrich's intercepted mail and telegram correspondences.

Information from an informant about an affair with John Wayne. Dietrich's relationship with Jean Gabin, a war hero and the most popular French actor of the prewar era.
