The author of Final Cut: Dreams and Disaster in the Making of Heaven's Gate offers the definitive biography of Marlene Dietrich, a book that, in the author's words, is "neither worship at the shrine nor autopsy: It is a celebration, and--very often--an act of wonder." 109 photos.

Steven Bach (1938–2009) taught American literature before becoming a film producer and head of production for United Artists. He was involved with dozens of films, including Sleuth, Manhattan, Raging Bull, and The French Lieutenant’s Woman. He wrote the critically acclaimed best seller Final Cut: Dreams and Disaster in the Making of “Heaven’s Gate.”From AudioFile:
Film star Marlene Dietrich is referred to as "the embodiment of erotic sophistication." When she died in 1992, Steve Bach had already spent six years researching this biography. Roddy McDowell seems to enjoy reading this role, but he finds little artistic challenge in reciting historical research, however lightweight. The program contains just two voicesÐthe uncelebrated narrator's and the star's. McDowell distinguishes Marlene's voice with a little girl's whimper. The result is a sympathetic treatment of this goddess actress, which seems to complement the intent of the author. D.W.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
