Irène Bordoni


French-American actress and singer who made her stage debut at age 13 at the Variétés, Paris. She went to the United States on 28 December 1907. Bordoni made her Broadway debut in a Shubert brothers production of Broadway to Paris at the Winter Garden Theatre and was a successor to Anna Held as Broadway's idea of French piquancy and Continental flavour.

Noted for her seductive brown eyes and coquettish personality, Irène Bordoni is probably best remembered from musical theatre as the star of the 1928 Cole Porter musical Paris that featured the song "Let's Do It (Let's Fall In Love)" which became Porter's first big success. Bordoni recorded and sang many times live and on radio Porter's song "Let's Misbehave" with Irving Aaronson and His Commanders dance band.

Bordoni made her Hollywood debut in Warner Brothers Show of Shows (1928). In 1929 her Broadway play Paris was adapted to a talkie, also called Paris, for which she reprised her starring role.

Irène Bordoni married twice. She died on 19 March 1953 at Jewish Memorial Hospital in Manhattan at age 64.
