Biography by Hal Erickson

French actress Katherine Kath made her first English-language screen appearance in Moulin Rouge (1952). She went on to appear in several films set in Paris, among them Anastasia (1956) and Gigot (1962). In the latter film, she was afforded second billing -- right after Jackie Gleason -- as Colette, the streetwalker mother of innocent little Nicole (Diane Gardner). She was briefly married to British filmmaker Jack Clayton, though curiously was never directed by him. Active until 1987, Katherine Kath's later screen roles included Catherine de Medici in 1971's Mary Queen of Scots.
