SIMONE RENANT 4x5½ youthful image of the actress, with a French inscription Photograph inscribed and signed: "Pour Achille Gambetta/Toute ma sympathie/Simone Renant". [Trans: For Achille Gambetta, with all my best wishes.] B/w, 4x5½. French actress Simone Renant (1911-2004) had her first starring role in The School for Journalists (1936, directed by future husband Christian-Jacque). She appeared with Erich von Stroheim in The Railway Pirates the following year. Remaining in France under German occupation, she played coquettish women in films like The Were Twelve Women and Love Letters. Renant could play comic roles as well, as in Romance for Three. She played against type in Clouzot's melancholy thriller Quay of the Goldsmiths (1947). She remained active on the stage, making infrequent but interesting films like Dangerous Liaisons (1959) and That Man from Rio (1963). She married four times, always within the industry: two actors, a director and a producer (Alexandre Mnouchkine, from 1974 until his death in 1993.) She was a member of the prize jury at the Cannes Festival. Edges lightly worn. Signature lightly faded at areas but fully legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
