Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Affectionately known as "D.D." to her fans, Danielle Darrieux established herself early on as a superb dramatic actress in films like "Mayerling" (1936), but choices she made during World War II inadvertently threatened her life. A resident of France during the occupation by Nazi Germany, Darrieux continued to work as an entertainer, an act that led her to being labeled a collaborator by the French underground and subjected to death threats. That cloud eventually faded and she continued to display considerable ability in classic films like "La Ronde" ("The Round") (1950), "Le Plaisir" ("Pleasure") (1952), "The Earrings of Madame de " (1953), and "The Young Girls of Rochefort" (1967). One of France's most enduring performers, Darrieux had one of the longest-lasting careers in entertainment history, appearing in both motion picture and television productions well into her nineties.
