Elissa Landi (1904-1948), an Italian-born actress, was educated in England. After writing her first novel at the age of twenty, she joined the Oxford Repertory Company and appeared in many British and American stage successes. During the 1920s she acted in a number of films, then traveled to the United States and appeared in a Broadway production of "Farewell to Arms". She was signed to a contract by Fox Film Corporation in 1931 and thereafter was paired successfully with such major leading men as Charles Farrell, Warner Baxter and Ronald Colman. She appeared with Robert Donat in the box office hit "The Count of Monte Cristo" [1934]. After her Fox contract was canceled in 1936 over a disputed role, she acted in several films for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. She retired in 1943, became a naturalized U.S. citizen and devoted herself to writing novels and poetry. Very good .
