Cat. #000803121: CORINNE CALVET

Sexy 10x8-inch black and white publicity portrait in her prime, wearing little more than a corset with a pistol at her side, boldly signed in black felt-tip marker in the 1980s.  In good condition. Seductive, statuesque French leading lady Corinne Calvet was lured from a promising law career by producer Hal B. Wallis, who imported her to America in 1947 and signed her to a contract with Paramount. After a promising performance in the film noir Rope of Sand (1949), she went on to star in films like When Willie Comes Marching Home (1950), On the Riviera (1951), Quebec (1951), White Price Glory (1952), Thunder in the East (1952), The Far Country (1954), and Sins of Casanova (1955), but, by the late 1950s, she was serving as little more than eye candy. Her career was further impeded by a long string of feuds, lawsuits and failed publicity stunts, culminating in a suicide attempt by overdose. Calvet was memorable on two episodes of "Batman" in 1968 and, later in life, in the horror-themed comedy Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1980).
