Mini bio:
Elissa Landi was an Italian born actress,rumoured to be a descendant of Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria. Born Elisabeth Marie Christine Kühnelt in Venice, Landi was raised in Austria and educated in England. Her first ambition was to be a writer, and she wrote her first novel at the age of twenty. She appeared in British, French, and German films before appearing in a Broadway production of "A Farewell to Arms".
She was signed to a contact by Fox Film Corporation in 1931 and played the heroine in Cecil B. De Mille's "The Sign of the Cross" (1932), but was overshadowed by Claudette Colbert who played the flashier role of the temptress Poppea. She also starred in the box office hit "The Count of Monte Cristo" (1934) with Robert Donat.

Her contract with Fox was abruptly cancelled in 1936 as a result of her refusal to accept a particular role and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer signed her. After a couple of romantic dramas she played the cousin of Myrna Loy in the popular "After the Thin Man" (1936).

After only two more films she retired, in 1943 when she became a naturalized U.S. citizen, dedicating herself to writing, producing six novels and a series of poems.

Elissa died from cancer in Kingston, New York, and was buried at Oak Hill Cemetery in Newburyport, Massachusetts.

Heres three of my own caps from "Sign Of The Cross".
