A collection of Marlene Dietrich's belongings is set to go on sale later this month (Mar14).

The Shanghai Express legend's three grandchildren are auctioning off more than 250 items which once belonged to the screen siren via Auctionmystuff.com.

The lots include one of Dietrich's iconic black tuxedos, estimated to fetch between $3,000 (£1,875) and $5,000 (£3,125), sunglasses, a typewriter, cigarette lighters, photographs and clocks.

The collection also includes a number of letters, including one written by author Ernest Hemingway, in which he addresses the German star as "Dearest Kraut".

The online auction will take place between 19 March (14) and 6 April (14). Some of the lots will be exhibited at The Hollywood Museum in Los Angeles prior to the sale.
