    Vilma Banky is a wonderful image subject whom we are fortunate to get into our shop every so often. This is a still shot from the 1926 film, "The Winning of Barbara Worth," in which Miss Banky starred opposite the original "British invasion," Ronald Coleman, and the Kevin Kostner of the the 1930s and 40s, Gary Cooper. What a romance triangle! Below, please follow the link to a 7 minute Youtube clip from the film, in all its golden glory. We couldn't find a full-length version online, but the clip will give you a wonderful taste :) For those of you who followed a link we had on a previous Vilma Banky card listing to "Son of the Sheik," you will see a very different Vilma on this one. No more the steamy Bedouin danseuse, but now the very sweetest of homespun Kates. She was really something, was Miss Banky, and the clarity on the clip is great!

    Incidentally, "...Barbara Worth" was based on a novel by the same name, by a hugely successful American author of the early 20th century, Harold Bell Wright. A household name in his prime (around 1910?), he is pretty much forgotten now, but his stuff, if very dated, was really quite a lot of fun, and if you ever run across a copy (usually to be found as a lonely old hardcover at the bottom of the box in a church rummage sale--you know, where all the treasure is!), we honestly do recommend you give it a try.

    Wonderful image, wonderful card. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    We adore the print quality on the cards that were produced by Cinemagazine!

    The gorgeous Miss Naldi was born in 1894 in New York City, into a working class Irish family as Mary Dooley. Times were tough. In 1910, her dad ran off, her mom died five years later, and to support her two teen-aged siblings, Mary worked as a cloak room attendant and an artist's model. She gravitated toward dance, was a Ziegfeld girl in 1918, and then in 1920 started appearing in film. She had a pretty good decade of work, but although her voice had a nice quality, she never made a talkie. Miss Naldi passed away in New York City, in 1961.
    Every bit of this bio was drawn from Wikipedia's deep, deep wellspring of knowledge. Thanks as always, Wikipedia!

    La Signorina Anna Fougez is one of our favorites here at Red Poulaine. Here she is wearing what could be a gorgeous wedding dress, no? We're certain Billy Idol must have been inspired by this image when he released the hit single "White Wedding" in the mid-'80s! Okay, kidding, but she would have been awesome as the bride in the video :) We'll offer you a link to the song below, just for fun.

    This card, published by A. Traldi, in Milan, is in excellent condition, with the added bonus of the wonderful Art Deco design on its reverse side. We should probably observe that although in it's overall form the reverse design fits the general Art Deco pattern, in its detail work of gracefully curving lines, it hangs onto elements of the Art Nouveau style, and we are, after all, talking about commercial artwork from the teens or early twenties which was often very much on the cusp of these two major artistic movements! Running up the left side of the card's back you will see the phrase, "Riproduzione Interdetta." This, and a couple of other phrases meaning basically, "Reproduction of this image is prohibited," or more simply, "All rights reserved," are commonly found on these older Italian cards, so fear not! This card, despite its marvelous condition is original and authentic, and in the neighborhood of 90 years old.

    Welcome to "Idols of the 1920s," where we hope to provide a special, cozy place for those of you who long to linger among the stars of the early silver screen, the hoofers and songbirds of dear old vaudeville's fading hours, a few divas of the grand opera, and of the operetta too, flappers, flappers, more flappers, and of course, and perhaps especially, those femmes fatales who with one smoldering glance can melt a heart, or break it in two. Have fun!

    Lya Mara, 1897-1960, was born Aleksandra Gudowicz to Polish parents. When the family moved to Warsaw at the beginning of WWI, Aleksandra studied stagecraft, soon began dancing professionally, and eventually became a hugely popular star of German silent films. She did not, however, make the transition to the talkies. Her career faded, and when Hitler came to power in '33, she and her husband, director and producer Frederic Zelnik, with whom she had enjoyed great success in earlier years, left Germany for London, where Zelnik continued to direct and produce films.
    Thanks Wikipedia for much of our biographical info!

Have fun!

    Brigitte Helm was, of course, the star of the 1927 spectacular "Metropolis," and with that feather in her cap, she was offered starring roles pretty much from then on, but almost always cast in the role of the cold-blooded Femme Fatale. She was actually the first choice for the lead in "The Blue Angel," but for whatever reason Marlene got that plum role.

    Wonderful high contrast image, with hazy glow. Very dramatic!

    Very nice unposted condition, with only minor wear to corners. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Superbly delicate coloration on this lovely card. It offers us an image of the popular Edwardian actress Miss Lily Brayton garbed in chain mail, who with her equally popular husband, Oscar Asche, performed "The Two Pins" in 1908 at the Aldwych Theater in London. The play was written and performed entirely in blank verse, or so writes the drama critic for the arts magazine Punch. He writes his article in blank verse too...funny :) He enjoyed the play very much (if you'd rather not read what he wrote) but if you'd rather read his response yourself, here's a link to the Google extract:

    We've found no history on this performer. What a beautiful image. Note the rubber stamped text at the bottom of the card. This indicates that the artiste was just breaking into the theater business, and this card, though so very professionally produced, was probably sent off to booking agents and theater managers, rather than being offered to the public alongside cards of already established artistes.

    "Borellismo was a word used in Italy in the teens to describe the Lyda Borelli craze. Girls went on diets and strove to imitate her twisted postures. She was like a decadent version of the Pre-Raphaelite beauty--thin, with wavy blond hair and strange but picturesque poses. She portrayed characters who were doomed and otherworldly, often bordering on the supernatural. Her Rapsodia Satanica (1915), a compelling film about an old woman who makes a pact with the Devil for eternal youth, is an splendid introduction to this fascinating star."

    Above quote from a short article about Lyda Borelli at http://web.stanford.edu/~gdegroat/borelli.htm.

    Lyda Borelli was so wonderful. If you venture into the wildwood of Youtube and search for her, you will be well rewarded. Lots of beautiful clips to enjoy. Brief observation though, we managed to watch a wonderful, partially-tinted copy of Rapsodia Satanica, and Lyda Borelli, at least in this film, was not thin! She was deliciously beautiful, her portrayal wondrously evocative, but if anything, she was downright zaftig! Very nice card with Signorina Borelli posing on a camelback couch in a gorgeous gown with a fringed bodice and some lovely lace trimmings!
    By the way, if you ever happen to visit Saragozza, in Bologna (in northern Italy), she is still revered there, and you can visit Casa Lyda Borelli, and soak up the Borellismo! :)

    One of our favorite, and most magical, subgenres of "Lovely Lady" postcards has to be that of the marvelous maenad. These are somewhat idealized, and presumably toned down, versions of those wild maidens of ancient Greece, who in their worship of Dionysus, the god of wine and sensual abandon, got up to all kinds of mischief. The maenad, as an image, was practically the poster girl of La Belle Epoque, expressing that rich, earthy, "joie de vivre," which has come to be seen as so expressive of that era. In our Marvelous Maenad section, we're not all that particular about whether the model is depicted as a woodland sprite, a pagan priestess, or if they're just a couple of Belle Epoque chorus girls unwinding after a tough dress rehearsal. The images we list in this section might have been published anytime between the 1890s and the 1930s. Basically, if they're wearing grapes, grapevines, animal skins, or any of the other accoutrements no self respecting maenad could do without, this is the section they'll end up in. Welcome to the Bacchanal!!! :)

    Lovely image of stretching Maenad, posted in Belgium, 1903. Very nice, posted card.

    Beautiful image of Casino de Paris performer Mlle. Juanita in embroidered ribbon cap by (Cliché) Oricelly, circa 1905. She positively glows! Monsieur Oricelly made truly remarkable use of the sepia tone.
    And what precisely does it mean when we see the word Cliché preceding the name of a French photographer? Well, though we are certain it does not mean an overused or trite expression, for which it is commonly used today in English, we aren't entirely certain what exactly it does mean.
    The word Cliché initially referred to the echoic sound of a printing press when running off copies, so it might mean a reprint of an original photo, but it could also mean "group" as in clique, since both nouns come from the same original idea expressed in two different, and kinda the same, French verbs. The first from clicher, the French verb for click, and the second from cliquer the Old French verb for click! How's that for a commentary having almost nothing whatsoever to do with our card? :)
    Wonderful condition.

    Superb photo of dancer and accompanist, published by the Cairo Postcard Trust, a company founded by Joseph Max Lichtenstern (1876-1958) in 1899. Lichtenstern emigrated to Egypt from Vienna in 1893 during the time when Vienna was a part of the Austro Hungarian Empire. In our continuing research we have found that although he is often credited as a photographer, he is usually mentioned as a publisher, and we can't say that he was the photographer of this image. Further, he apparently sold the company in 1912, and as this card was posted in 1917, though the image might well have been from backstock produced during his tenure, it might just as well have been taken after he had returned, for a time, to Austria.

    Cairo, in the late 19th, early 20th century was a tremendous tourist mecca and soon after his arrival there, the demand for quality picture postcards was huge. The Cairo Postcard Trust published original photographs in a postcard format, rather than postcards as an afterthought, or a sideline, which was sometimes the case with other companies So, as far as we know, this photograph did not appear originally in a larger format, or as a cabinet card, but as a postcard only.

    Herr Lichtenstern was an Austrian Jew, but should not be confused with another person of a similar name and birth date, who often surfaces in research, and was murdered at Theresienstadt by the Nazis during the holocaust. After serving in WWI, our Max Lichtenstern returned to Egypt, where he maintained a home and family (as well as other businesses, though apparently he did not continue with postcard publishing) and passed away there in the late 1950s.

    There is some creasing in the upper right, and lower right, corners of this card, and minor wear to edges and corners. A truly wonderful image!

    Lya is one of our favorite 1920s stars. Here she is, really turning up the heat in this satin robe. We can never get enough of her, and apparently our customers agree, since her images rarely last more than a few days in the shop.
    She was born Amalia Putti, in Austro-Hungary, in 1897. She began in vaudeville, but made her screen debut in 1918, and was successful as both a stage and screen actress in Germany. Coming to the US in 1926, she was unable make a really successful go of Hollywood, did some work on Broadway, traveled to England, where she made some silent films, and then returned to the US to give her career there another try, but sadly died of pneumonia in New York, in 1931.

    Below, you can follow our link to Youtube, to a 10 minute segment of the film "The Sorrows of Satan," a D.W. Griffith silent from 1926, in which Lya played the "vamp." Beginning at approx. 6:30 on the clip, you get about 3 minutes of Lya being vampy. We watched the entire film, in its parts, on Youtube (you will see it offered in its segments to the right of the window, once you've followed the link), but the print is not great, there is no musical score included, and all in all, we cannot rave about it. Still, if you think you want to try it, do start at part 1 of 9, as 8 of 9 (where our link takes you), is one big spoiler.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaRsN5ZsZgE

    Incidentally, and having nothing whatsoever to do with our card, but rather with the film clip we hoped you were able to see, the novel upon which "Sorrows of Satan" (a Faustian romantic fantasy) was based, was written by an extremely popular author at the turn of the century, Marie Corelli. She wrote romances with a pronounced "white light occult" flavor, and was apparently a friend of Oscar Wilde's. Red attempted reading some of her stuff decades ago, but is sorry to admit to finding it just a bit too dusty for fun :) The given name Mavis, by the way, found its origin in that novel, and was given added popularity, no doubt, by the film.

    Very nice unposted condition on this card. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Postage is for first class shipping in a secure photo mailer, and we happily combine shipping on all paper goods. If you purchase two cards, we will refund the postage on the second card, and when you purchase three or more cards from us at the same time, your shipping will be entirely free, except for international orders which, because of sudden increases in international shipping rates will still be charged one card's shipping fees on orders of three or more.

    And please come visit our blog at:

    redpoulaine.blogspot.com

    where we post biographical and historical tidbits, images of cards and photographs for sale, some already sold but remembered fondly, related images of historical interest and sometimes even images of items that have not yet arrived in the shop, but that are expected to arrive soon, as well as coupon codes, links to other related sites, and more!
