  • Hotel Imperial

    1927. USA. Directed by Mauritz Stiller. With Pola Negri, James Hall. Swedish director Stiller brings a European sensibility and atmosphere to the setting of this Hollywood studio vehicle, written by Jules Furthman for Polish actress Negri, about a housemaid who hides a fugitive Hungarian officer from Russian soldiers during World War I. Although Negri gives one of her least glamorous performances in the film, Madalena's poster features a flamboyant caricature that he had originally created to promote her 1923 feature The Spanish Dancer. Silent. 80 min.

In the Film exhibition Batiste Madalena and the Cinema of the 1920s
