Paulette Goddard was a lovely, magnificent and talented actress. She became famous through her roles in Charles Chaplin's movies: the Gamine in Modern times and the combative Hannah in The great dictator.
But she did enjoy a great deal of success independent of her mentor. In the 1940s she became a major star playing heroines with sparkling eyes and mischievous smiles.
She acted for great directors like Cecil B. de Mille, George Cukor, Alexander Korda and Jean Renoir.
She's also famous for her collection of jewelry, master paintings, husbands, and ... lovers !
