1943. Marlene’s provocative harem-girl costume is by Irene Lentz. A caption on the back of the photo reads:
DIETRICH DANCES…For the first time in her screen career, Marlene Dietrich dances in “Kismet,” Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Technicolor spectacle starring Ronald Colman. For the slow, sensuous dance, Marlene wears black chiffon pantaloons over gilded legs, an adroitly embroidered and jeweled choli, lots of sheer veiling, and her blonde hair twisted into a topnot. Based on the stage play made famous by Otis Skinner, “Kismet” is directed by William Dieterle and produced by Everett Riskin. The stellar supporting cast includes Edward Arnold, James Craig, Joy Page, Hugh Herbert, Hobart Cavanaugh, Florence Bates, Harry Davenport, and Robert Warwick.
