Franco-Russian model Irina Demick was Darryl F. Zanuck's newest obsession in 1961. He cast her prominently as a French resistance fighter in his all-star The Longest Day (1962), making a point of bringing up her key scene (in which she drowns a Nazi officer) at virtually every press conference attending the film's release. In 1965, Irina was spotlighted in no fewer than seven roles in Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines, each character a different nationality. Despite Zanuck's strenuous efforts, Irina Demick never caught on with the public, and she faded from films after 1968's Prudence and the Pill.
