Lunch with Marlene and Noel archiveLondon. 1970. The legendary Dietrich phones her great friend Noel Coward in desperation ... and they meet for lunch. 'Poor darling glamorous stars, their lives are so lonely and wretched. Nothing but applause, flowers, and Rolls Royces. It's too pathetic and wrings the heart.' Noel Coward Diaries. But Marlene has news that alarms even the facetious Mr Coward ... news that revives traumatic memories of Dietrich's time spent on the front line during the war, and her painful return to Berlin in 1960. After lunch (and the interval!) Marlene and Noel treat us to a dream concert showcasing all their hit songs from Lilli Marlene and London Pride to Naughty Lola and Mad About The Boy.
