Mini Bio (1)

Lili was a French Actress who is remembered more for who she married than the movies she appeared in. When the sound revolution came into Hollywood, the studio's scrambled to find actors who could speak lines and record well. It was at this time that Lili burst on the scene. While her accent would always be very noticeable, the novelty of sound overcame the quality of the lines. In the MGM movie The Bridge of San Luis Rey (1929), she played against Ernest Torrence as his love interest. In 1931, she was cast with the young Gary Cooper in the early western Fighting Caravans (1931). After that, her career was almost over as she continued to make just a couple of movies over the next few years. In 1935, she married a hell raiser by the name of Errol Flynn. This rocky tempestuous union lasted until 1942.
