A MATTER OF SPELLING

STARE W ITCH ? ? STARE V ITCH ? ? STAREWICZ ? ?

Which spelling to be used ?

STAREWICZ is the Polish spelling of his name.

STAREVITCH is often used in English.

STAREWITCH is used by Starewitch himself – as a signature and when he wrote letters – so as Starewitch’s signature used to be STAREWITCH with a W, we are going to use this spelling all through theses information pages and documents.

However he himself sometimes used a V instead of a W. In France, his name has often been altered.

For example, here is Ladislas Starewitch’s signature on a letter to Paris Cinéma Location about The Tale of the Fox, on October, the 12th, 1939.
