The Strange But Unknown Star

  • 8'
  • Netherlands
  • 1969
A ten-year-old girl dressed as a 1920s star gives a performance. She wears a rubber mask, sits in a large, red armchair, and reads magazines that revive actresses from the past. Annette Hanshaw sings in the background. Marlene Dietrich is bombarded with egg, chocolate powder, powdered sugar and currants. (Eye)
