From the musical-comedy stage, German actress Lena Malena was imported to Hollywood with some fanfare by Cecil B. DeMille in 1928, where she starred in the intriguing but apparently lost Diamond Handcuffs (1928), about a South African gem that brings misfortune for its owner. The melodrama, scripted by Willis Goldbeck and Carey Wilson, was actually three stories with Malena as the continuing character of Musa. In the third and final story, Musa is a cabaret dancer in a Negro speakeasy and Malena apparently played the sequence in blackface. Sadly, her remaining Hollywood films failed to match this fascinating debut.
