Nicole Maurey

1. – Marisa Pavan, Diane, 1956. Bizarre casting at MGM. Lana Turner was Diane de Poitiers, Mexican Pedro Armendariz was the French King Francis I, Roger Moore was his son, Prince Henri – and the French Nicole lost the role of Moore’s wife, Catherine de Medici, for being French!  Pavan was Italian. Oh, Hollywood! The film, said Moore, was a huge flop – and MGM fired him.
