Claudette Colbert

Highest Rated: 100% Three Came Home (1950)

Lowest Rated: 44% Bluebeard's Eighth Wife (1938)

Birthday: Sep 13, 1903

Birthplace: Saint-Mandé, Val-de-Marne, France

Inimitably charming, witty and sophisticated star of American films from the start of talkies till the mid-1950s, and later a most welcome presence on the stage and in occasional TV. Born in Paris, Claudette Colbert moved to New York when her banker father encountered financial setbacks. Initially intending to become a commercial artist, she studied with speech teacher Alice Rossetter to overcome a slight lisp. Rossetter encouraged Colbert to audition for a play she had just written, "The Widow's Veil" (1919), and so one of the most durable careers in show business began with an appearance as an Irish bride (complete with red wig and brogue).
