Some people think Marlene Dietrich was only "in-your-face" because she was an international film star in the 1920's and 1930's. After all, movie stars have to be "in-your-face," don't they? But Dietrich -- glamorous though she was -- also lived her bi-sexual life (married or unmarried) to suit herself and regardless of what anybody thought about it. In fact, in 1930, when her career was just getting off the ground and every decision could make or break her career, she boldly played a scene as a cabaret singer in a movie entitled "Morocco" wherein she not only wore a man's tuxedo, but she kissed a woman passionately and full on the mouth. For all the world to see.
