Violetta Napierska - German silent film actress. She co-starred with Béla Lugosi and Lee Parry in the horror film Hypnose/Hypnosis (1920) and in several other films with Lugosi produced and directed by Richard Eichberg. She did some work in France and then did her last film in Italy in 1955.
Mom always took us to see Aunt Tekla when I went down to BYU both coming and going. I took the bus up to see her in Salt Lake, as did my brother Eric when he went to BYU. Aunt Tekla played the piano in the silent film theaters (including Mary Pickford's films, featured here) during her teens and twenties. She once sat down and went through tunes... she had them all memorized even after decades later.
