Lovely French actress.
Trained for the ballet, Robin entered films in 1946 and became the romantic ingénue of choice for directors like Rene Clair and Marcel Carne.
Her first break was in Rene Clair’s Man About Town (1947) in which she was cast opposite Maurice Chevalier. The greater part of her work was in France but she also appeared in Waltz of the Toreadors (1961), Follow The Boys (1963) and even a Carry On - Carry On Don’t Lose Your Head (1967). Robin’s last film was Alfred Hitchcock’s Topaz (1969).
She died, with her husband, in a blaze in her Paris apartment.This is a lovely vintage deckled-edge French postcard of a Sam Levin photograph, nicely signed ("Sincerely, Dany Robin") in blue ink across the image. In very good condition.
