She was 101. She had a heart ailment, said her son, Marjan Kiepura. Though Ms. Eggerth was known mainly to aficionados at the time of her death, she was a popular international star in the 1930s, when her light silvery soprano and her physical beauty propelled her to success in more than 40 movies, including German-language films written by a young Billy Wilder and two MGM movies with Judy Garland. She was the No. 1 box office draw in Brazil in 1930s and was renowned throughout Europe. Her stardom only increased with her marriage to one of her co-stars, the operatic tenor and matinee idol Jan Kiepura, in 1936. The two went on to make movies together, star in “The Merry Widow” on Broadway — in a production choreographed by George Balanchine — and raised two sons. Ms. Eggerth was an operetta singer with a light, melodious voice that was colored by a Hungarian accent in all six languages she spoke. The greatest operetta composers of the day — including Franz Lehar, Emmerich Kalman and Oscar Straus — wrote for her at a time when operetta was a thriving popular art form. Singing with a deep connection to the texts that gave significance to even the slenderest of lyrics, Ms. Eggerth elevated a popular art form into the realm of artistry. “Operetta is really a very erotic thing,” she said in an interview for a 2007 article in The New York Times. “Today, there is no erotic. Sexiness is something which is not shown right away.” Marta Eggerth was born April 17, 1912, in Budapest. Her father was a banker, and her mother was a singer who encouraged her daughter’s career. A doctor, called in to look at young Marta’s vocal cords and evaluate her future prospects, predicted that her voice would give out in a couple of years — a prediction that proved to be off by about eight decades. By the time she was 17, Marta was in Vienna as an understudy for the leading role in Kalman’s “The Violet of Montmartre.” In the best theatrical tradition, she went on for the ailing leading lady, Adele Kern, and became a star. Her stage career took off rapidly, including a turn as Adele in the Hamburg production of “Die Fledermaus” under the director Max Reinhardt. Soon she was cranking out film after film in Europe, mainly light romantic vehicles with pretty songs. MGM brought her to Hollywood in the early 1940s, but Ms. Eggerth made only two movies, overshadowed by the musical star MGM was grooming at the time: Garland. Ms. Eggerth’s star turn in “For Me and My Gal” (1942), a song called “The Spell of the Waltz,” threatened to upstage Garland and ended up on the cutting-room floor. Ms. Eggerth also appeared with Garland in “Presenting Lily Mars” (1943). Although her mother played cards with Peter Lorre, Bela Lugosi and other members of the Hungarian expatriate community, Ms. Eggerth arranged to be released early from her contract.
