This issue of Midnight appeared today in 1968 and features cover star Monika Dietrich boasting about her sexual appetite. The interview seems like a figment of the writer’s imagination, as Dietrich takes him to a London strip club, decides the girls aren’t very attractive, bum rushes the stage and gives the crowd a show of her own. Later she takes the writer back to her place. True? Impossible to say. Dietrich had appeared in four movies by then but hadn’t scored a breakthrough role. In Midnight she’s clearly decided to sex up her image, declaring, “I love being naked and having men hunger over my body,” and adding later, “There’s only one thing I like more than exhibiting myself, and that’s sharing myself.” In the end, all that alleged sharing did little for her career. She appeared in only two more movies before fading away.
