Even though he received a classical education, Holländer ended up writing cabaret music.
In the vibrant cabaret scene of 1920's Berlin Holländer was an important figure, known for his skills in improvising, composing and writing lyrics.
Marlene Dietrich insisted on him as the pianist in 'The Blue Angel' ('Der blaue Engel') and he ended up writing the movie's music as well.
The famous 'Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuß' is just one of the many successful songs he wrote exclusively for the great actress.
