  3. Sirkka Sari Biography

    Sirkka Sari (born Sirkka Linnea Jahnsson, 1 May 1920 – 30 July 1939) was a Finnish actress.Sirkka died when she fell down a chimney. She was at a party with the rest of the cast and crew of Rikas tyttö, her third and last film, while shooting at the Aulanko Hotel in Hämeenlinna; the party had been her idea. She and one of the men in the group went up to the roof of the hotel; on the flat roof, there was a chimney several feet high, with a ladder leading up to the top. Sari mistook this chimney for a scenery balcony, climbed up, and fell down inside it into a heating boiler's furnace, where she died instantly.Because of Sari's death, the end of the movie had to be altered; the crew shot further away, and so another woman had to replace Sari on these final shots.
