La Jana Autograph. CoALa Jana Autograph. CoA

La Jana: German Ross publisher edition of a b/w print, depicting the young pretty actress La Jana.

5 x 7 inches (13 x 18 cm), good condition.

La Jana (Henriette Margarethe Hiebel, 1905- 1940) was an Austro-German dancer and actress.

She appeared as a dancer in revues in Berlin, Stockholm (1933) and London (1934/35) among other cities, performing in Herman Haller's An und Aus, Erik Charell's Casanova and Max Reinhardt's Die schöne Helena. In Casanova she was presented to the audience semi-naked on a silver platter.

She became the talk of Berlin. Crown Prince Wilhelm became her lover and visited her regularly at her villa in Grunewald. There were also rumours of an affair between her and Joseph Goebbels.

The impresario Charles B. Cochran, in contrast, reports reading in a newspaper that "Hitler was seldom seen in public without La Jana".When Charlie Chaplin was in Berlin, they had an affair which he wrote up for the Women's Home Companion.

With Cochran's Streamline, La Jana toured throughout England and Scotland in 1934. In this show, she played a Spanish dancer. After her return to Germany, Truxa (filmed in 1936, released in 1937) made her a film star and from then on she appeared in one or more films almost every year. The Tiger of Eschnapur (originally Der Tiger von Eschnapur) from 1938, directed by Richard Eichberg, was a highlight in her career.
