Corinne L, a splash of history
by Carole Wrona (51′ ) A production of 8 et Plus Productions, with Ciné Cinéma, France 3
In 1939, Corinne Luchaire was an actress with a bright future, she was ranked as the 3rd favorite star of the French. Daughter of journalist Jean Luchaire, a notorious collaborator, Corinne, suffering from tuberculosis, interrupted her career and took advantage of the ‘good days’ of the Occupation. Condemned during the Epuration trials, she died at the age of 29, in oblivion and opprobrium, leaving a controversial and sulphurous autobiography entitled My funny life.
