Warwick earl steps out in style with The Blue Angel

Seventh Earl of Warwick with Marlene Deitrich

Seventh Earl of Warwick with Marlene Deitrich

As older town residents may remember, the seventh Earl of Warwick became known as the Duke of Hollywood after signing a contract with MGM in 1936.

his picture of him out on a date with the legendary Marlene Deitrich is just one of a collection of photographs on show in the Great Hall until February 14.

Castle manager Geoff Spooner wanted to offer winter visitors an extra “inside” guided tour in case the heavens opened. There are not only stills but actual movie clips of the earl with a galaxy of 1950s stars.
