Summary Magisterial in scope, this dual biography examines two complex lives that began alike but ended on opposite sides of the century's greatest conflict. -- In 1929, filmmakers were casting what would become the iconic role of Lola-Lola (who made "Falling in Love Again" a sensation) in the groundbreaking sound film -- Triumph of the WillBoth women were "prodigies of will, discipline, endurance, self-reinvention, and exaltation of the body in all its muscular, androgynous, pose-striking pagan glory" (James Wolcott), and both had their grand passions, but neither abandoned ambition for the sake of love. As award-winning biographer Karin Wieland shows, in their later years, both women grappled with controlling their image--Riefenstahl by pursuing an additional career in photography, and Dietrich by eventually hiding at home as her famous beauty was ravaged by time. -- Dietrich & RiefenstahlDie Zeit) panorama of the twentieth century
