DANIELLE DARRIEUXVintage sepia-toned bust photo by Ray Jones of a smiling Danielle Darrieux in an evening gown and looking over her shoulder, signed "Sincerely". Darrieux has appeared in over 140 movies since 1931. Photograph signed "Sincerely/Danielle Darrieux". B/w sepita-toned, 7¼x9 overall, 7¼x9 image, one surface. Photo by Ray Jones and Universal Pictures, with photo credit stamps in black ink on verso. French actress Darrieux (1917-2017) has an arms-length and still-growing resume of over 140 films and TV shows, most of them French-language productions, and has received three nominations for the César Awards, the French version of the Academy Award, for Une chambre en ville (1982), Le lieu du crime (1986) and 8 femmes (2002). Darrieux, who trained on the cello at the Paris Conservatory, made her film debut in 1931's La Bal, with her big break as Baroness Marie Vetsera in Mayerling (1936). She continued working during the Nazi occupation of France, which led some to accuse her of collaboration, but these accusations did nothing to stop or even slow down her career. American audiences may know Darrieux from her few Hollywood films, including The Rage of Paris (1938), Rich, Young and Pretty (1950) and Five Fingers (1952). She also has a few Broadway credits, including a stint as Katherine Hepburn's replacement in Coco (1969-1970). Comic book fans may recognize her from one of her most recent efforts, as the voice of Marjane's grandmother in the film adaptation of Persepolis (2007). Lightly toned, silvered, cracked, creased, bowed and rippled. Signature is lightly beaded in places but legible. Pinholes and light chipping in bottom right corner of image (do not touch signature). Light scratches on image (not visible head-on). Lightly soiled on verso (no show-through). Otherwise in fine condition.
