Oskar Joost Tanz-Orchester – Ich spür in mir (I Feel In Me) English Waltz from Film “Mazurka” (Peter Kreuder) Grammophon 1935 (Germany)

NOTE: This is one of the most fascinating compositions of Peter Kreuder – German pianist, dance bandleader and a genius in composing Film music in the 1930s (he also accompanied and wrote songs for Marlene Dietrich and Greta Keller). This song was written especially for Pola Negri – the world megastar of silent cinema and one of the brightest Hollywood legends of the 1920s. She was a Polish chorus girl dancing in a ballet in Grand Theatre in Warsaw in the late 1910s and accepting her first roles in early Polish silent movies. Aroun d 1919 she was discovered by Ernst Lubitsch and traveled to Berlin, to work in the Berlin-based film studio UFA. Her movies dazzled managers of the Paramount Pictures, she went to Hollywood and within a short time she conquered silver screen in the silent movie era with her roles of the femmes fatales. Power of her undisputed talent was equal to power of the legends of her fervent romances with various Hollywood celebrities, including Charlie Chaplin or Rudolf Valentino and her alleged aristocratic background. A story had been remembered about how during the party given to Paramount celebrities in her home, where her mother from Poland - a simple woman who did not speak foreign languages - was staying - Pola Negro forbade her to speak, explaining to the guests that her mother had lost her voice because of tragic experiences in Russia, when, as an aristocrat, she was escaping from the Bolshevik revolution.

However in the 1930s, Pola Negri’s fame started to wane giving way to the generation of younger American girls promoting more democratic and less vampy style, like Ginger Roberts, Kay Francis or Mae West. Skipped by the mainstream of American film production Pola Negri traveled to Europe where she began a successful career as recording artist and willingly accepted roles for Pathé Films in Paris and in 1935 for UFA, which became the main film production in the Third Reich. Enormous success of the German film “Mazurka” - where Negri partnered the Austrian superstar Willi Forst - was followed by more box office smash hits “Moskau-Shanghai” (Moscow-Shanghai, 1936), “Madame Bovary” (1937), Tango Notturno (1937), “Die fromme Lüge” (The Secret Lie, 1938), and “Die Nacht der Entscheidung” (The Night of Decision, 1938). Negri was believed to have been one of the favorite stars of Adolf Hitler’s, who therefore turned his blind eye at her untrammeled origin (Pola Negri’s father was a wandering Gypsy from Slovakia, although she claimed he was a Polish patriot who was exiled to Siberia by Russians for his anti-Tzarist activity). In 1940, when Germany took over France, Pola Negri left her home in Riviera and via Portugal she fled to USA. She initially lived by selling off jewelry, then she was offered supporting roles in some minor productions. In 1943 she had one significant performance in “Hi Diddle Diddle”; although the film gained rave reviews, Pola was not offered any further roles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=143&v=eWOU6PmkgXA

In 1945 her agent arranged a nationwide tour with Pola Negri’s performances of her greatest songs, such as “Ochi tchernye” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoEprTWBtlE , “Tango Notturno” (1937) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMIRCrdtofk , “Ich spür in mir” (1935) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSuO7uWZODk or “Paradise” (1932) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRDLLPViYqU The tour turned out to be Pola’s farewell to her American fans, for she withdrew from life in the public sphere thereafter. Yet in 1964 she accepted role in “The Moon-Spinners” (1964), directed by James Nielson. Bearing in mind her long-term rival Gloria Swanson, who became an Academy Award winner for her performance in the 1950 film “Sunset Boulevard”, Negri hoped the film would earn her an Oscar. Unfortunately, this did not happen. In 1972 she was asked to act in Jerzy Hoffman’s 1974 classic Polish film “Potop” (The Deluge), but she turned it down. She lived in San Antonio, Texas until 1987, when she died from the brain tumor and attack of severe pneumonia.
