Françoise Rosay

1. – Suzy Prim, Untel père et fils, France, 1943. Charles Spaak wrote the script for Jean Gabin, Françoise and Pierre Blanchar. Realisateur Julien Duvivier went with Raimu, Suzy Prime, Louis Jouvet. Banned in France  by Nazi Propaganda Minister Goebbels, the film first  opened   in America in ’43 – and two years later at home, after all hostilities ended in ’45.

2. – Simone Signoret, L’armée des ombres (US: Army of Shadows),  France, 1969. Part of realisateur Marc Allégret’s 1946 plans for the Joseph Kessel  book about the French Resistance.  He found it easier  to finance  a Fernandel in Pétrus (with Marcel Dalio, also intended for L’armée).  Jean-Pierre Melville made the masterly ’69  film.
