Together with music business tycoon Eddie Barclay, Walter composed the music to ‘Marlène’ (lyrics: Henri Djian), an homage song to Marlène Dietrich. In 1970, this was the Monegasque entry to the Eurovision Song Contest in Amsterdam and it was sung by the then 16-years-old Dominique Dussault. Walter arranged the music and also conducted the Metropole Orchestra during Dussault’s performance. The song finished eight.
