Pola Negri edition, illustrated with scenes from the Paramount Picture. The Spanish Dancer is a 1923 American silent costume epic starring Pola Negri as a gypsy fortune teller, Antonio Moreno as a romantic count, and Wallace Beery as the king of Spain. The film was directed by Herbert Brenon and also features a five-year-old Anne Shirley, appearing under the name Dawn O'Day. The film survives today.[1] Restored by the EYE Film Institute in the Netherlands, the movie was shown at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. on August 5, 2012, accompanied by the 1916 Lois Weber film Shoes. The film is essentially the same story as Mary Pickford's Rosita which was filmed around the same time as The Spanish Dancer with Negri's old colleague from Germany Ernst Lubitsch directing. Negri's The Spanish Dancer was considered the better film.
