More Marlene Dietrich YouTube Tutorials

I'm in the midst of writing about Hollywood costume collector John Lebold, the movie Manpower, and hopefully also songwriter Hertha Koch, but I'd like to direct your attention to some of the latest Marlene Dietrich-related YouTube tutorials that I've discovered. Pin curls and Shanghai Express seem to be all the rage. That is, if one can call two videos a rage. I'd rather see YouTube's gurus recreate the scalp-wrenching look of Kismet, but--tell me--who did Shanghai Lily better?
