  Summary  

Margo Lion (1899–1989) was a German chanson, parodist, cabaret singer and actress, best-known for her role as Pirate Jenny in director G.W. Pabst's 1931 French language adaptation of Bertol Brecht and Kurt Weill's Threepenny Opera .

She appeared in several French films until the early 1970s, including Docteur Françoise Gailland, L'Humeur Vagabonde, La Faute De L'Abbe Mouret, Le Petit Matin, Le Fou Du Labo, Julie La Rousse and the French romantic melodrama Martin Roumagnac, which starred Marlene Dietrich.

Lion and Dietrich sang a famous duet, "Wenn die beste Freundin mit der besten Freundin", a song which allegedly had lesbian overtones. It became a hit in Weimar Berlin prior to Dietrich's departure for Hollywood.
