Stacia Napierkowska
Stacia Napierkowska
French postcard in the series Les Vedettes de Cinema by A.N., Paris, nr. 50. Photo: Sobol. Exotic Stacia Napierkowska (1886-1945) was a fascinating star of the silent film era. The French actress and dancer is best remembered as the seductive but cruel Queen Antinea in the classic fantasy L’Atlantide/Missing Husbands (1921). Between 1908 and 1926 she appeared in 86 films. Stacia Napierkowska was born Renee Claire Angele Elisabeth Napierkowski in Paris, France, in 1886 (some sources say 1891; and in the magazine Mon Cine (nr. 17, 1922) she even declared to be born in 1896). Her parents were Polish. Like Mistinguett, she debuted as a dancer in the revues of the Folies-Bergere. Then she dances in a revival of Lysistrata by Maurice Donnay at the Bouffes-Parisiens. Albert Carre director of the Opera Comique spots her and engages her for the production Fetes Romaines (Roman Holiday), which he presents at the Theatre Antique d'Orange. Her performance, but especially her statuesque body and her beauty, triggers an indescribable enthusiasm from thousands of spectators. The public’s fascination for her will endure for twenty years. In 1908, when she was already a star dancer at the Opera Comique, Napierkowska made her film debut in L'empreinte ou la main rouge/The mark or The Red Hand (1908, Paul Henri Burguet) with Max Dearly and Mistinguett. Philippe Pelletier at Cine Artistes writes that “her perfect physique, her long black hair and dark eyes were quickly put to use to interpret exotic roles for productions of Societe Cinematographique des Auteurs et Gens de Lettres (Film Society of Authors and Men of Letters) directed by Albert Capellani”. Here she often inserted dances into her performances as in Dans l'Hellade (Charles Decroix 1909), Cleopatre (Ferdinand Zecca, Henri Andreani 1910) where she is a messenger who is poisoned and dances a dance of death, and Le pain des petits oiseaux (Albert Capellani 1911), in which she becomes a dance star. Several internet sources like Pelletier state Stacia performed Queen Semiramis in Le serail en dix volets/Semiramis (1910, Camille Morlhon), but that is incorrect - existing film copies show that the role was played by Yvonne Mirval. Stacia instead was a very voluptuous - and again dancing - Esmeralda in an early silent adaptation of Victor Hugo’s Notre-Dame de Paris/ The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1911, Albert Capellani), opposite Henry Krauss as Quasimodo. Max Linder, always looking for pretty women, engaged her as his partner in several short comedies like Max lance la mode/Max Sets the Fashion (1912, Rene Leprince, Max Linder). In Spain she did a dance tour and appeared in the film Max toreador (1913, Max Linder). She then set course to the United States with The Captive. This ballet captured the American public, but not the censors. In 1913, she was arrested during a performance in New York City which was declared indecent. After returning to France, Napierkowska stated in the New York Times (27 April 1913): "Really, I have not brought away a single pleasant memory from the United States" and "What a narrow-minded people they are -- how utterly impervious to any beautiful impression!" In France her successful film career continued. She appeared as Marfa Koutiloff in the popular serial Les Vampires (1915, Louis Feuillade) starring the equally exotic Musidora. Then she went immediately to Rome to star in Lo stratagemma di Stasia/Stacia’s Stratagem (1914, Ugo Falena) and a score of other Italian short films during the early years of World War I. In Rome, she tried to convince her close friend, journalist Germaine Dulac, to start making films. Dulac finally agreed on condition that Stacia would participate in her second film, the adventure Venus Victrix/In the storm of life (1917, Germaine Dulac). Napierkowska also directed a short silent film herself, L'Heritiere de la manade/The Heiress of the Manade (1917, Stacia Napierkowska). Then she then took a break from the cinema and ballet to rest. Stacia Napierkowska is probably best known for her role as Antinea, Queen of Atlantis, in the fantasy film L'Atlantide/Missing Husbands (1921, Jacques Feyder). The director approached her for this part in 1919. IMDb cites Feyder about this meeting: "Miss Napierkowska was an extraordinary dancer. I had seen her at a dance festival where she, as slim as a flower stalk, had been enthusiastically applauded by a crowd of Parisians admirers. A year later, having to choose actors for L'Atlantide, I proposed her for the leading part of Antinea and the producer agreed; so, in a cold December afternoon, she was in my office, all wrapped in a fur coat, to sign the contract. I thought I did not remember so a plump face but my doubt vanished in a moment because I was too happy for having her in my film, and she left the office without having put off her coat. The first costume rehearsal was an ugly surprise for me: during last year she had gained a thi
