    Russian star prima ballerina of the late 19th and early 20th century (1881-1931), she became the first ballerina to tour around the world. Fabulous, larger size photograph showing her in The Dying Swan (see HERE), her most famous solo dancing piece, signed by her in white ink and inscribed to Mrs. Smalley, who directed her only film. "The Dumb Girl of Portici" (see HERE) is a 1916 silent film with Pavlova in the title role (title should actually be "The Mute Girl of Portici"). The movie was directed by husband and wife Phillips Smalley and Lois Weber (who Pavlova refers to as Mrs. Smalley in her inscription). This was Pavlova´s only film.  Pavlova writes and signs "To Mrs. Smalley, my first and never to be forgotten teacher in the fascinating art of the cinema, Anna Pavlova". Original photograph, size is 10.4 x 13.3 inches, mounted on a black cardboard mat to a total size of 11.9 x 14.6 inches. Photo has been mounted with paper hinges and can be carefully removed from the mat if desired.  A moderate amount of silvering around borders, and some creases over the right border and near the signature, but in overall very good condition. This is a rare, truly one-of-a-kind Pavlova collectible! ALSO INCLUDED is a brand new DVD with "The Dumb Girl of Portici" (see scan of the DVD´s cover).   WATCH a 20-min COLORIZED CLIP FROM "THE DUMB GIRL OF PORTICI", with added music.
