Julien Bertheau

1. – Raymond Pellegrin, Venere/Imperial Venus, France-Italy, 1962. Gina Lollobrigida accepted $160,000 to be Napoleon’s sister, Pauline Borghese, then exploded over her “brother.” Poor Bertheau was quickly dropped, not for having played the Emperor before (like his replacement) but for the dire sin of playing him opposite Sophia Loren!  In, as things turned out, the more spirited Madame Sans-Gene, 1961.
