Katherine DeMille

  1. Paulette Goddard, North-West Mounted Police, 1939.   No, no, CB DeMille told Paulette Goddard (then Mrs Charlie Chaplin), you’re not right for an Indian half-breed.  And yet, somehow, he thought his adopted daughter, Katherine, was. Plus German Marlene Dietrich, Hungarian Steffi Duna, British Vivien Leigh,  Russian Anna Sten (Stench to her foes) and the French Olympe Bradna and Simone Simon! Goddard refused to give up.  Decked out in full costume, make-up and pidgin English, she stormed  into CB’s office on  the Paramount lot… and soon sashayed  away  with a script, a deal and a triumphant  grin!   The only CB child to take up acting, Katherine made 32 films, including  two for Pop:  The Crusades, 1934, and Unconquered, 1946. She was Mrs Anthony Quinn (the first of three) during 1937-1965
