Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Geneviève Page


Here is a beautiful song written by Charles Aznavour and performed by the great French crooner Jean-Claude Pascal, chosen to illustrate the beauty and elegance of French actress Geneviève Page.
Long-necked, doe-eyed French leading lady Geneviève Page (born Geneviève Anne Marguerite Bonjean in 1927, in Paris, France) enjoyed a very long career, spanning fifty years, in glamorous roles, appearing in French, Italian, British and American films. Geneviève has frequently been cast in costume pictures as a delectable heroine who meets an untimely demise. Among her great screen roles were Madame de Pompadour in Christian-Jaque's "Fan-Fan the Tulip" (1952) (alongside Gérard Philipe and Gina Lollobrigida), Dominique Danemore in Sheldon Reynolds' "Foreign Intrigue" (1956), Nadia Fedor in Carmine Gallone's "Michel Strogoff" (1956) (with Curd Jürgens and Sylva Koscina), Mary Bolevasco in Riccardo Freda's "Trapped in Tangiers" (1958), Countess Marie in George Cukor and Charles Vidor's "Song Without End" (1960) (with Dirk Bogarde and Capucine), Princess Urraca in Anthony Mann's "El Cid" (1961) (with Charlton Heston and Sophia Loren), Madame Anais in Luis Buñuel's "Belle de Jour" (1967) (with Catherine Deneuve), Countess Larish in Terence Young's "Mayerling" (1968) (again with Deneuve and Omar Sharif), Margot in John Krish's "Decline and Fall… of a Birdwatcher" (1968), or the mysterious Gabrielle Valladon in Billy Wilder's "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes" (1970). Even late in her career, Geneviève Page remained delightfully decorative in films like Robert Altman's "Beyond Therapy" (1987), Jacques Deray's "Dark Woods" (1989), or Georges Lautner's "Stranger in the House" (1992). She continued to act until 2003. She is also a very reputed theatre actress.
Enjoy Geneviève's class!
