Among the Italian diva's, Maria Jacobini (1892-1944) was an island of serenity, as Vittorio Martinelli expressed it, the personification of goodness, of simple love. Her weapon was her sweet and gracious smile. In some Italian and later also some German fillms, however, she could play as well the vivacious lady, the femme fatale, the comedienne, the hysterical victim and the suffering mother or wife.
