The pretty woman in this photograph is French actress, Odile Versois (1930-1980). She appeared in 50 television and film productions between 1948 and 1980. Her IMDb biography describes her as “docile, delicately beautiful, and light haired”. I wonder why the writer chose the word “docile”. The IMDb article asserts that “she moved audiences most with her portrayals of fragile, often tragic heroines in romantic drama”. She appeared in a number of British films in the 1950’s. She had three sisters who became actresses, including Marina Vlady, known for her sultry roles. Her parents were also performers. Her father was a well known opera singer and her mother was a dancer. Odile began acting as a child and also briefly pursued a ballet career. She was a child ballerina with the Paris Opera Corps de Ballet. Her film career began at the age of 16. For much of her career; she played leads. She married actor Jacques Rene Dacqmine in 1951 but the marriage was of only one year duration. She married a second time in 1953 and had four children before being divorced. Her second husband was a Count and a Corsican politician who became a Russian diplomat. She died of cancer just after she turned 50 years old. This French postcard is part of a series (no1296) and is in excellent condition (see scans).
