Ligia Branice

  1. Grazyna Dlugolecka, Dzieje grzechu (US/UK: Story of Sin, Poland 1974.       As usual, Polish directing legend Walerian Borowczyk had his wife in the lead rôle. A matter of days beore shooting started, fellow film-maker Stanislaw Rozewicz diplomatically suggested that the 40-something Ligia was, maybe, a mite too old to portray a 20-something heroine. Boro agreed, reluctantly. He ran to the Lodz Film School’s acting section to find a substitute. As Ewa’s costumes had already been made he required a girl of a similar size. Grazyna fitted the bill. Literally.
