Bogda, Maria

(Janina Kopaczek, 1909-1981)
   Popular prewar actress who appeared in seventeen films from 1929 to 1939, mostly playing the roles of beautiful, innocent, often religious characters. She served as the embodiment of stereotypical virtues of an ideal young Polish woman: beautiful, faithful, devoted to her husband/fiance, as well as the country/religion. Several times Bogda appeared on the screen paired with actor Adam Brodzisz, her husband since 1930. These films, including Under Your Protection (1933, Edward Puchalski and Józef Lejtes), The Young Forest (1935, Lejtes), and The Baltic Rhapsody (1935, Leonard Buczkowski), featured her most interesting roles. She tried to move beyond her conventional screen persona by appearing in 1935 in two well-received comedies with Adolf Dymsza, ABC of Love and Antek, the Police Chief, both directed by Michał Waszyński. After 1945, like several other prewar stars, she had no offers from the nationalized film industry of People's Poland. In 1961 she settled with her husband in the United States.
