Marlene Dietrich's arrival in New York had elements of farce. She chose not to remember that she was not simply an hour late but an entire day late, and her wardrobe was not the only problem. Paramount delayed the press reception 24 hours while lawyers negotiated. In return for keeping Dietrich's suits out of the papers, they promised Riza generous treatment when the divorce came to court. Jesse Lasky officially unveiled her the following day at a press lunch. Dietrich complained that the press conference was all men. The following day, studio publicists, anticipating a call for head shots of the new star, had her photographed by fashionable portraitist Irving Chidnoff.
