just seen an extract on CAS - Classic arts showcase today.
she certainly was and still had a strong temper.
i totally ignored such diva. always interesting to discover "forgotten" (for our generations) stars, in the sky or from the screen, and there are many still shining even if sometimes in some shadow of the passing time.
hopefully CAS will show other Divas, or Divo's.. later on ... even if she acted in silent movies and so wasn't exactly an opera diva...
at 91 years old Francesca was still "working good" in front of the cameras.
so the last scene of the extract reproducing the Puccini's opera Tosca end, she originally filmed in 1915 i think, was a kind of sublime show of the eternity still available on some old acetates.
It remembered also the same location for filming the same opera, with Placido Domingo.
