Pola Negri. Though the writing on the card is accurate to the film, the photo actually dates from circa 1918 when she was still making films in Germany.

A Woman of the World (1925) is a silent drama comedy film starring Pola Negri, directed by Mal St. Clair, produced by Famous Players-Lasky, and distributed by Paramount Pictures.[1][2][3]

One of Pola Negri's best Paramounts and today available films.[4]


A European Countess visits relatives in the United States where her continental freedoms clash with the morals of a small American town. She smokes a cigarette in public and wears flashy makeup. A crusading District Attorney stops at nothing to have her leave town and expose her for her loose ways only to fall in love with her himself.
