Marlene Dietrich - Lencis & A Song About Blond Women














These scans are of Marlene Dietrich, posing with Lenci dolls. The first photo is from an Argentinian magazine, dated 1931, and the other photo is an old postcard.














This photo is also an old postcard, given to me by a fellow boudoir doll collector. Click on this photo to hear Marlene Dietrich sing (in German) "Nimm Dich in Acht vor Blonden Frauen" (Rough translation "Beware of Blonde Women").


Lyrics with English version:

NIMM DICH IN ACHT VOR BLONDEN FRAUEN
Nimm dich in Acht vor blonden Frauen.
Sie haben so etwas Gewisses!
Ist ihnen nicht gleich anzuschauen
aber irgend etwas ist es!
Ein kleines Blickgeplänkel sei erlaubt dir!
Doch denke immer: Achtung vor dem Raubtier.
Nimm dich in acht vor blonden Frauen,
die haben so etwas gewisses!

BEWARE OF BLOND WOMEN
You'll try in vain, you can't explain
The charming, alarming blond women.
They fascinate, they captivate.
Beware the amazing blond women.
Be careful when you meet a sweet blond stranger.
You may not know it, but you're reaching danger.
You'll try in vain, you can't explain
The charming, alarming blond women.
