French actress Brigitte Auber performed primarily for a European audience in features and series, though she did have one successful crossover role in Alfred Hitchcock's "To Catch a Thief." Born in Paris, she made her first big-screen appearance at age 19 in a minor uncredited role in renowned French director Jacques Becker's romantic comedy "Antoine et Antoinette." Becker moved her up to a leading role for his subsequent feature, "Rendezvous in July," a humorous drama about rebellious youth living it up in late-1940s Paris. Maintaining the spotlight, Auber again took a top spot in the melodramatic tale of a rampaging murderer, "Under the Paris Sky," by prolific director Julien Duvivier. Her most internationally recognizable role was in Hitchcock's "To Catch A Thief," in which she played the deceptive ex-lover of Cary Grant's character. Though she missed the chance to work in Hitchcock's next film, "The Trouble with Harry," because the director thought her accent was too strong, Auber continued to act periodically on both the big and small screens including guest spots on such crime dramas as "Rocca" and "Julie Lescaut." She again played for American audiences in a small part in the 1998 action drama based on the famous stories of Alexandre Dumas, "The Man in the Iron Mask," which featured Leonardo DiCaprio.
