(From wiki page) Suzanne Dalbert (12 May 1927 – 31 December 1970) was a French actress who appeared in a number of American films and television series during the 1940s and 1950s. Dalbert was born in Paris, and moved to the United States following World War II. She was discovered by the Paramount studio head Hal Wallis who hoped to develop her into a major star. She was cast in a supporting role in The Accused but was left demoralized at her treatment by the overbearing director William Dieterle.[1]

Dalbert did not develop as a leading star, but appeared in a mixture of small roles in larger budget films while playing the female lead in B Pictures such as Trail of the Yukon (1949). From 1951 onwards she appeared mostly in television before retiring in 1957 and returning to her native France.
