About This Image
Photographer's information is reversed out of the negative on the recto of the image at lower right.
French actress Catherine Damet began playing young and beautiful ingénues in films in the 1940s, such as Henriette in Bernard père et fils (a short film) and the naïve 18-year-old Agnès Leroux in the 1946 film, Mensonges, for which this image is likely to have been a publicity still. She played in many other films in the 1940s-50s, including Columba, Suzanne et ses Brigands, Wicked City and the High Life.
