SIDELIGHTS: "I left the U.S. in 1957 and spent most of the 20 following years in Paris working in French theatre, films, television and radio. I speak fluent French. As a singer, I created a one-woman 'Jazz Show,' which ran for six weeks in a Café-théâtre in Paris and in concerts outside of Paris, and sang in several jazz clubs in Paris. Before going to Paris, I spent six months in Dublin, where I played in a production ofde Ghelderode's, Pantagleize, and toured the South and West of Ireland in a variety show and modeled for Irish fashion magazines. Even before leaving for Europe, I was a working actress, having appeared in John Van Drutens' last play and in the Theatre de Lys's production of The Three-penny Opera with the late Lotte Lenya."
