Claudette Colbert


French-American actress on stage and more than 50 films. Her early school goal was art and fashion and she studied design until she was offered a small stage role. After six years in the legitimate theater she signed a contract with Paramount in 1930 that continued for 14 years. In 1932 she was an outrageously sexual female in "Sign of the Cross," leading to her role in "Cleopatra," 1934. She won the Oscar for "It Happened One Night," 1934. After 1955 she worked mostly on TV and on the stage and did not make a movie after 1963. She did a TV miniseries in 1986, "The Two Mrs. Grenvilles."

Colbert married twice, to Norman Foster 1928-1934 and to Dr. Joel Pressman in 1936 until his death in 1968.

On 2 March 1992, she had a stroke at her home in Barbados, West Indies that affected her right side but not her speech or face. She used a motorized wheelchair after then.

She died 30 July 1996 after a series of strokes in Speightstown, Barbados, West Indies, at age 92
