Try this:

Amazon.com: Marlene Dietrich - The Glamour Collection (Morocco/ Blonde Venus/ The Devil Is a Woman/ Flame of New Orleans/ Golden Earrings): Marlene Dietrich, Bruce Cabot, Roland Young, Mischa Auer, Andy Devine, Frank Jenks, Eddie Quillan, Laura Hope

and these:

Amazon.com: marlene dietrich - DVD: Movies & TV

and these imports of titles unavailable in the USA; try to ignore a few anamolies that snuck into the list:

Keep in mind that the ones referred in Xploited Cinema are region 2 French editions. This would justify getting a region-free DVD player.

For an ultimate Marlene Dietrich surprise, get this UK Dietrich collection. It contains Shanghai Express - the only official DVD edition of this masterpiece to date (not counting semi-bootleg and inferior Russian Film Prestige edition):

I hope Universal releases another Glamour collection for her as well as Claudette Colbert, Veronica Lake, Dorothy Lamour, and Paulette Goddard.
Corey's most wanted R1 dvds:

Little Darlings (1980), My Cousin Rachel (1952), The Deep Blue Sea (1955), The White Cliffs of Dover (1944), Born to Be Bad (1950), Ivy (1947), Reckless (1935), Springtime in the Rockies (1942), The Barretts of Wimpole Street

Does anyone have an update on this?

Believe it or not we now have an eighteen disc set in the UK, but I'd prefer to get it on NTSC so that the films play at the correct speed...

I don't understand why it hasn't been released in the US - could there be distribution rights issues with some of the films(?) e.g. Shanghai Express which has never had a US DVD release.
