Biography by Hal Erickson

Lively French leading lady Suzy Delair was a cabaret singer before inaugurating her film career in 1947. Her screen assignments ranged from the sublime (1960's Rocco and His Brothers) to the ridiculous (1966's Is Paris Burning) to the sublimely ridiculous (1956's Fernandel the Dressmaker). Ironically, Suzy is best known to American filmgoers for what may well be her worst film. In 1950, Suzy Delair was cast as will-of-the-wisp chanteuse Cheri Lamour in Atoll K, the melancholy final film effort of ageing comedians Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.
