Steffi Duna

  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. (She was Mrs Anthony Quinn during 1937-1965).  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!
