Suzanne Flon

Suzanne Flon (28 January 1918 – 15 June 2005) was a French film actress. Her father was a railway worker and her mother crafted jewelry. Prior to becoming an actress, Suzanne Flon worked as an English translator at the Paris department store Au Printemps and then as personal secretary to Édith Piaf. Suzanne Flon’s stage credits included plays by Jean Anouilh (L’Alouette, Antigone, Roméo et Jeannette), André Roussin (La Petite Hutte), and Loleh Bellon (La Chambre d’amis, Les Dames du jeudi, Changement à vue, and Une Absence). Her English-language theatrical roles included Katherine (The Taming of the Shrew) and Rosalind (As You Like It). She was awarded with the Leon of Venice for her role in “Tu ne Tueras le Point” in 1961 and obtained two Cesar Awards in 1983 and 1989. She is best known for her films “Moulin Rouge” (1952), “Mr. Arkadin” (1955), “Le Procés” (1962), “Un Amour de Pluie” (1974), “Les Enfants du Marais” (1999) and “La Demoiselle d’Honneur” (2004). She won Best Actress at the 1961 Venice film festival for her role as the mother of a conscientious objector in Tu ne tueras point. Director Danièle Thompson dedicated Avenue Montaigne to Flon, who had here her last film appearance. Writer-director John Huston described Flon as “the most extraordinary woman I have ever known.”
