Michèle Morgan - Rotten Tomatoes

Michèle Morgan



Born Simone Roussel, this delicate, sophisticated, detached star of French and international films had notably large, expressive eyes. In her youth she studied acting with Rene Simon, and debuted onscreen at age 15 in a bit part. Soon Morgan progressed to lead roles, becoming the most popular actress in France. She made several films in Hollywood during World War II but was underutilized in her roles. For her work in Jean Delannoy's La Symphonie pastorale (1946) she won the Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Award. In 1969 she was named Chevalier of the Legion of Honor. From 1942-49 she was married to actor William Marshall; their son is actor Mike Marshall. She was the widow of French actor Henri Vidal, and later married actor Gerard Oury. She authored an autobiography, Avec ses Yeux/With Those Eyes (1977). Morgan largely retired from the screen in 1968, but occasionally returned in both lead and cameo roles. Morgan died in 2016, at age 96.
