Anna Sten(1908-1993)Born in Russia to a Ukrainian father and a Swedish mother,she studied at the Russian Film Academy and joined the Moscow Art Theater.Strikingly beautiful,she went on to appear in a number of Russian silent films, but it was in a German that Anna gained notice.Samuel Goldwyn saw a picture of Anna in the paper and rushed to view the film.His agent did sign Anna to a contract but forgot to mention the fact that she didn't speak a word of English,which made her appearance in sound pictures questionable.She spent a year studying English every day and working out makeup and acting.Her first picture,Nana (1934),even though almost completely rewritten and reshot from the original, didn't bring audiences into the theaters.While Anna was looked great,the script and picture were average.Her second film,marginally better suited to her style,also died within weeks at the box office.Anna made a few more movies,but by the end of the decade she was forgotten.
