Annie Vernay

  1. Martine Carol, Bifur 3, France 1944.  Réalisateur Maurice Cam started shooting in the ill-fated 1939. WWII began and filming (and France) collapsed. By the time, the Nazi occupation of France was almost over in 1944 (many French insist WWII lasted during 1939-1944!!), his leading lady Vernay had died  at 19, of typhus contracted  aboard  a boat going to America.  (She had attracted Hollywood interest after her Max Ophuls film, Le roman de Werther, 1937). With a new blonde look and retroussé  nose,   this is Martine’s fifth film. Ten year later she would also benefit by working with the legendary Opuls as Lola Montes
