Cat. #00084211: MARTINE CAROL

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare vintage 3.5 x 5.5-inch black and white German postcard portrait, boldly signed in blue fountain pen in the 1950s. In very fine condition. Promoted as France's answer to Marilyn Monroe, Martine Carol starred in several dozen French films of the late 1940s and early 1950s, the most notable of which was Max Ophuls's Lola Montes (1955). Her career began to decline following the rise in popularity of Brigitte Bardot and, at the age of 46, she died tragically of a sudden heart attack.
