Vive la France

Here’s a photograph from the December 2 1955 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of a French actress.


Martine Carol (1920-1967) was a major star in France in the late 1940s and early 1950s, and was considered the French equivalent of Marilyn Monroe. Sadly, like Monroe, she had a troubled personal life: she was married four times, had drug problems, and attempted suicide. Also, like Monroe, she died young: she had a heart attack in a hotel room in Monte Carlo.
