[SILENT FILMS] Pola Negri: Ispanskaia tantsovshchitsa [i.e. Pola Negri: Spanish Dancer]

Moscow: Kinopechat’, 1927. Item #1924

8 pp.: ill. 17,5x26,5 cm. In original illustrated wrappers.

An excellent example of early Soviet advertising brochures for foreign cinematography. It presents the American silent film “The Spanish Dancer” (1923) starring Pola Negri. After the actress had moved to America, it was the first film with her adapted in the USSR.
The edition contains a film libretto, a review of Pola Negri’s work, comparison of “The Spanish Dancer” with “Rosita”, short biographies of P. Negri, A. Moreno and A. Menjou. The texts are supplemented with actors in costumes from film stills, framed in constructivist style. The back cover displays illustrated advertisements
for two silent films: “Sar-pige” (1927) produced at the Chuvash studio and “Forest Story” produced at the Belarusian studio. Most pictures produced
at the Chuvash film studio were lost during the 1930s. A script of “Sar-pige” [Woman] was written by theatrical and film actor and director Ioakim Maksimov-Koshkinsky (1893-1975) who organized the studio. In the 1930s, Maksimov- Koshkinsky passed through several arrests and several court proceedings. During them, “Sarpige” was lost.
“Forest Story” was set in 1920, showing confrontation and battles between Polish troops and the Bolsheviks in Minsk. The film was produced in the same parts of the city just six years after the real battles. It starred Belarusian politicians A. Chervyakov, I. Adamovich, V. Knorin. All the three were murdered during the Purges
and then the film was hidden in a limited access storage for a long time.

The only copy is located in Yale University.
