Alluring French leading lady Corinne Calvet began making films in her native country in 1945. She was brought to America by producer Hal Wallis, who cast her in the 1949 Casablanca derivation Rope of Sand. From 1950 through 1953, Calvet acted opposite such worthies as Danny Kaye, Dan Dailey, James Cagney, Alan Ladd, and Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. Back in Europe in 1954, Calvet appeared in such international productions as Sins of Casanova (1954) and Napoleon (1955). Corinne Calvet continued making scattered appearances in American films into the 1980s, often in such fare as the Cherri Caffaro soft-core porn vehicle Too Hot to Handle (1976). In her autobiography Has Corinne Been a Good Girl? she claimed that her marriage to adventure star John Bromfield (one of five husbands) came about because Bromfield was ordered to marry her by his studio.
