Moje video z 2011 r., po przerwie, wraca na swoje miejsce.
My 2011 video, absent here for some time, is back again ! ...:)

Below, my information having been attached to my 2011 upload:

Pola Negri speaks in Polish !

On Sunday, the first day of Easter Holidays, Pola Negri is visited by the San Antonio Catholic church nun and is offered a package of a festive food prepared by nuns and blessed by the priest on Holy Saturday -- according to the Polish Catholic church tradition. Such a thing is sometimes prepared by relatives or friends or neighbors for those who are unable to go to church with the food made by themselves. And as we may hear here, Pola Negri receives a horse-radish processed in a Polish way (which she refuses to accept cause her health problems...), "blessed eggs", decorated and painted traditionally, a "Polish poppy cake", baked by the nun paying the visit, a Lamb of God (usually made of cake or sugar) and the home-made sausage -- smelled by the star with appetite .
Pola Negri thanks and extends her greetings and Easter holiday wishes to all Polish people: may God keep them all in His care !
The recording has no date but I would date it for early 1980's (1982-83) as in this short conversation the nun is revealing that next she is going to the airport to collect some Polish man flying from New York. Miss Negri gives a short investigative question: - A refugee from Poland...? - It was then when after crushing the Solidarity movement, communist authorities introduced in Poland the so called marshal law and many a people in Poland were trying to find their way for living outside their home country.

Recording received from Dr Jerzy Pytasz, Łódź, 2004.

In the second part of the video - instrumental version of Miss Negri's tango "Can You See the Stars ?" which she introduced in her last German film "The Night of Decision", 1938, here beautifully played by the Emil Roosz tango orchestra.
