b. June 23, 1869 Odessa, Russia,
d. May 29, 1944 Santa Monica, CA.
Best remembered as Valentino's mother in "Blood and Sand," Rosanova began her career on Broadway and later played several immigrant women on the screen. In the film "Lucky Boy," George Jessell sang ‘My Mother's Eyes' to her just like Al Jolson sang to Eugenie Besserer in "The Jazz Singer." During her acting days, she used water color paints for make-up which supposedly stayed in place and washed off easily after a day’s shooting.
