Dietrich's character Lola Lola in Der Blaue Engel performing in a cabaret during the Weimar era. Much darker than the film Cabaret, which is known to be the essential Weimar film. Lola is one of my main inspirations for my stage character (and Dietrich for my real life)
Lola Falana: Best known in the 70s for appearing on TV shows such as The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1970-78) and The New Bill Cosby Show (1972), hosting The Muppet Show (1979) and starring in her own variety series Lola! (1975-76).
