In memoriam: Danielle Darrieux (1917-2017)
The legendary French actress, who started out in acting as a teenager, passed away on October 17 at the age of 100, after a career that encompassed over one hundred films. She was lovingly known as DD many years before BB even existed. She was the muse and wife of Henri Decoin, had a magnificent singing voice, and was hailed as a screen idol in the interwar years. She had a successful career revival in later life with her role in The Young Girls of Rochefort by Jacques Demy. Danielle Darrieux was wooed by Hollywood in the 1930s, but found it dull and chose to return to France. Today, UniFrance pays tribute to the memory of this star who did a brilliant job of representing her country abroad.
