Anna Sten
No. 42 in a series of 50 from Player's Navy Cut Cigarettes
"Born in Kiev, South Russia, on December 1st, 1910, Anna Sten is the daughter of a Swedish mother and a Ukrainian father who was killed during the revolution. At the age of fifteen she was given a leading rôle in an amateur show, and this won her admission to the state-controlled film academy. Three years later she was in a Moscow repertory company, and then made her film début, winning fame in The Yellow Ticket. Her two films for U.F.A., The Brothers Karamazov and Tempest, won her an American contract, and she appeared after a year's 'grooming' in Lady of the Boulevards".

"If Goldwyn can, with great conviction
Instruct Anna Sten in diction
Then Anna shows
Anything goes"
