Marta Eggerth, the wonderful singer who was a big star of the European screen in the 1930s, made films with Judy Garland, and headlined “The Merry Widow” on Broadway with her husband, Jan Kiepura, will turn 100 on Tuesday. I use this as an excuse to profile Eggerth in Thursday’s Washington Post.

Above: Marta Eggerth over six decades: in the film “Die Czardasfürstin,” 1934 [LINK FIXED], and on stage in New York at age 82, 1994.
