Sari Maritza (March 17, 1910 - July, 1987) was an actress in British films of the early 1930s.

Born Dora Patricia Detring-Nathan in Tianjin, China, Maritza was the daughter of a wealthy industrialist and his Viennese wife. Her stage name was taken from the titles of two then famous European operettas: 'Sari' and 'Countess Maritza'. She entered films in 1930 and gained some notoriety for dancing a tango with Charles Chaplin at the premiere for his film City Lights in 1931. Although her behaviour was described as lurid, which was silly publicity, she attracted attention and was cast in several low budget, but relatively popular British films.Photo measures 8 x 10.25inches. Photo is dated 9-9-1932.
