Forthcoming or already there: Marlene by Angelika Kuźniak. New Polish biography reveals Dietrich's Polish connections.

All linked texts are in Polish, since it's pretty unlikely that the book will be translated. Something to ponder.

I thought her secret husband was Czech!

From the reviews I gather that the Polish connections are about her admiration for Polish actors and directors and meeting with them to discuss film plans never to be brought into life. A Czechs biography of Dietrich would have more potential to tantalize, this one is maybe more about secret potential acting?
