Mireille Balin was one the most glamorous and best loved actresses ofpre-war French cinema. She appeared in two of the best rememberedFrench films of the 1930s: Pépé le Moko (1937) and Gueule d'amour (1937) , both opposite 'Jean Gabin' . Afterthe German occupation of France and her separation from her long-timefiancé, the singer/actor 'Tino Rossi' in 1942, she starred inseveral films and became the idol of the Paris High Society where shemet the love of her life, Birl Desbok, an officer in the Wehrmacht. Inthe summer of 1944, as Paris was about to be liberated, she and Desbokfled Paris and tried to reach the Italian border but on September 28th,1944 they were arrested by the FFI in Beausoleil (near Nice).

Separatedfrom Desbok, who was probably executed (she never knew what reallyhappened to him), she was beaten and raped before being taken to Niceprison. She was soon transferred to Fresnes prison (near Paris) whereshe stayed until her release on bail on 3rd January 1945. She wasforbidden to work for a year but once this restriction lifted, she wentback to the studios to appear in what proved to be her last film La dernière chevauchée (1947) , her frail constitution preventedher from appearing in any other films. She died in 1968, forgotten andbroke. .
