The great French actress, Françoise Rosay

She was described as the greatest living French actress of the day (mid 60's).

She was in Berlin on some kind of whirlwind ambassadorial visit, when I suddenly received a phone call from a Berlin official to drop everything and get my studio ready for photographs. I did so, and within the hour a whole entourage arrived with the lady, who had heard about me and had been able to squeeze exactly one hour into her busy schedule to have me take her photos.

As good as the face is, the person was magnificent. She was the epitome of the great European and French woman, which I knew so well from Nadia Boulanger, Madeleine Milhaud and others in their circles. Her manner was breathtaking.
