Your usual discriminating kindness...

This post is part of Nathaniel's "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" series in which the participants must post a single image from a movie he or she deems as the "best shot" for any particular reason.

Excuse the very short entry for this week's Best Shot as I just came back from a trip very much like the one Marlene Dietrich took in Morocco. Okay, maybe not much like her adventures in Morocco where she falls in love with a soldier and gets the attention of a rich fellow. Must be nice.

She strikes quite a figure though throughout the film especially in her opening song number decked out in tophat and tails and where my favorite shot comes from. She's just so sure of herself in this moment. Even with the rain of boos, she commands the screen, and the audience, with sheer confidence and presence.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
