Description

Famous American actress Betsy Blair with French friend and colleague Roger Pigault during the 14th International Festival of Movies in Cannes, 1961. Betsy Blair was an American actress of film and stage, long based in London. Blair pursued a career in entertainment from the age of eight, and as a child worked as an amateur dancer, performed on radio, and worked as a model, before joining the chorus of Billy Rose's Diamond Horseshoe in 1940. There she met Gene Kelly; they were married the following year, when she was seventeen years old, and divorced sixteen years later in 1957. After work in the theatre, Blair began her film career playing supporting roles in films such as A Double Life (1947) and Another Part of the Forest (1948). Her interest in Marxism led to an investigation by the House Un-American Activities Committee and Blair was blacklisted for some time, but resumed her career with a critically acclaimed performance in Marty (1955), winning a BAFTA Award and a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She was born on December 11, 1923 and died on March 13, 2009. Roger Pigaut was a French actor and film director. He appeared in 40 films between 1943 and 1980. He was born as Roger Paul Louis Pigot, on 8 April 1919 and died on 24 December 1989. Photo taken: 9 May 1961
