Andrée Tainsy


Andrée Tainsy was supposed to make her screen debut in Pierre Fresnay's film Le duel (1941) but the film was interrupted in 1939 by the declaration of war. When the Armistice was signed with Germany in June 1940, she decided to flee Paris, and eventually France. Her exile first took her to Argentina, first in Mendoza then to Buenos Aires where she joins actors Rachel Bérendt , Madeleine Ozeray, Maurice Castel and author Jacques Théry. From there on she traveled to Chile where 'Jacques Rémy' rallied a troupe of exiled European comedians (Robert Darène, Nora Gregor, Grégoire Aslan) to shoot the film Le fruit mordu (1945) (called in French "Le moulin des Andes"). She returned to France after the war where she settled for good.
