Pola Negri

Polish actress Pola Negri at the State and Lake Theater, Nov. 23, 1933. She came to the U.S. in the mid-20s following a successful European career. Following a very public display at Rudolph Valentino's funeral, she claimed they were engaged and placed a wreath with her own name atop his casket. Negri continued to mourn very publicly for him, fainting whenever a photographer was present. She fell out of the public's favor. This, combined with a thick accent that didn't work with the 'talkie' films, caused her to return to Europe in 1941.
