SHE MAŁGORZATA HENDRYKOWSKA, SMOSARSKA
The review presents Małgorzata Hendrykowska’s book Smosarska, which is devoted to the biggest Polish cinema star between the First World War and the Second World War. Hendrykowska presents not only Jadwiga Smosarska as a person, her life and roles but also excellently places her career in a wide social and cultural context. Smosarska continually remains in the centre of the author’s view and attention, but equally important are the changes in customs, social expectations and the Polish cinema.The reviewer underlines that the book is beautifully published, superbly written and greatly documented. It joins the best features of popular biography and scientific monography.
