The inspiration behind this piece
Claudette Colbert (a.k.a. Émilie Claudette Chauchoin – she added Colbert to her stage name after her maternal grandmother’s maiden name), did not always dream of becoming an actress. As a young woman, she leaned towards painting, fashion design, and commercial art.
While studying to become a fashion designer at the Art School of New York, she attended a party with writer Anne Morrison and received a small Broadway part in the play The Wild Westcotts (1923). Following her Broadway debut as an actress, Claudette Colbert signed a five-year contract with producer Al Woods.
As the film industry transitioned to talkies, the demand for talented stage performers rose. This demand led to the recruitment of Colbert by Paramount Pictures.
On the silver screen, Colbert would become known for playing light comedies and emotional dramas. Overall, she appeared in 60 films, won an Academy Award for the film It Happened One Night (1934), starring opposite the dashing Clark Gable. This, friends, is the charming film that stole my heart and made me adore this woman.
Here’s a short clip from the movie:
