Steven Bach passed away on March 25, 2009 according to the MD newsletter. Mr. Bach was a scholar, producer and the author of the brilliant Marlene Dietrich: Life and Legend releases in 1992. It is simply one of the best books ever written on Dietrich. He was in contact with her and had many interesting conversations with her. He was also the rarest of creatures: a true gentleman. I wrote Mr. Bach a 'fan letter' and he was kind enough to answer.
