Mini Biography

With classic patrician features and an independent, non-conformist personality, Capucine began her film debut in 1949 at the age of 21 with an appearance in the film Rendez-vous de juillet (1949). She attended school in France and received a BA degree in foreign languages. Married for six months in her early twenties, she never remarried. In 1957, she was discovered by director Charles K. Feldman while working as a high-fashion model for Givenchy in Paris and was brought to Hollywood to study acting under Gregory Ratoff. She was put under contract by Columbia studios in 1958 and had her first leading part in the movie Song Without End (1960). She made six more major movies in the early to mid 1960s, two of which (The Lion (1962) and The 7th Dawn (1964)) starred William Holden, with whom she had a two-year affair. Moving from Hollywood to a penthouse apartment in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1962, she continued making movies, mostly in Europe, until her suicide in 1990.

The elegant and sophisticated actress was a high fashion model for Givenchy when she was discovered by

director Charles Feldman in 1957.

Germaine Lefebvre (Capucine) was born on January 6, 1933 in Toulon, France. There, she earned a BA

degree in foreign languages.

It was as a model that she became known as "Capucine" (pronounced Cap-oo-seen), which is French for

Nasturtium.

She received her first leading role in "Song Without End" (1960), and went on to make many more films

including "The Pink Panther" (1963), and "Walk On the Wild Side" (1962).

Film director Howard Hawks (1896 - 1977) and his wife Dee spend a summer day by the pool in Monaco with producer Charles K Feldman (1904 - 1968) and Feldman's protegee Germaine Lefebvre, aka French actress Capucine (1933 - 1990).
