Storyline

"I Wish You Love" offers a time capsule of Miss Dietrich's legendary stage act. The television special was taped in London over two days and later edited to a one-hour concert version. Dietrich wasn't pleased with the final result, saying that it "ain't as good," not on a par with her usual exellence. Still, if this late Dietrich concert doesn't show the diva at her most brilliant, it is still fascinating to watch her cast her spell over an audience and the artful way in which she manoevures their every emotion with her choreographed moves and song. She sings some of her old movie songs, war ballads and love songs. Highlights include her rendition of "Where have all the flowers gone." Written by Wolfie

This was actually filmed at the then brand new New London Theatre in Drury Lane,not the Theatre Royal,two evenings were recorded,this is the weaker of the two versions,in the other one she seems much more relaxed and even looks better as well.Not the best representation of her stage act,but better than nothing at all.Apparently she hated the set which was designed,and at the last minute the company I worked for in London had to rustle up a cloth of the Rene Bouche sketch to be lowered at the end of the show.The alternate show which was available has slight differences,like the back projections on Lili Marlene and one other song,and the curtain calls went on forever,with a lot of teasing with the curtains,a much better show if you can find it.
