Pola Negri: The Fatalist

Very interesting 😀

Write, Re-Write, Repeat

From:  “A Creature of Flame and Desire,” by Sergio Delgado, Copyright, 2014.

During her reign in the 1920’s, the press made Miss Negri’s love life into something of a sport:  who was she seeing?  How long would it last?  Who was she engaged to?  Would they ever get married?   Pola must have found the whole thing amusing and helpful in terms of publicity.  There are many instances in which she hinted at an engagement with a “well-known Englishman” or “a wealthy American Businessman,” and giving some excuse for not naming names.  Ultimately, the press managed to ferret out the identity of her swains, only to come up with a denial from the intended.

Ode to Pola

This is beyond beautiful!

Write, Re-Write, Repeat

From “Motion Picture Magazine,” June, 1923:

POLA NEGRI

If an aged philosopher stood before
Her portrait hanging in the hall of fame,
i think he would muse thus:
A thousand jeweled nights are in her eyes,
While luring shadows lie in her black hair;
the smoke wreathes curl from her enticing lips
As perfume from the heart of a red rose;
She loves or hates, known no neutral plane.
The flush of life spreads o’er that rounded cheek.
That ivory neck, which like a slender shaft
soars from its pearly base.
And she has found the fourth dimension,
Which is Romance.
Ah, Romance.
How tightly does she hold you by her hand
‘Tis said to be a genius
One must have a spice of madness
It is there—the madness of a love of life
And life of love.
Ah me, to be her lover!
