"Fifi D'Orsay has graced these pages regularly of late, and why not? Letters continue to arrive, asking for more pix of this personable Parisian." (Film Fun, 1941)
Fifi D'Orsay (April 16, 1904 - December 2, 1983) was born Yvonne Lussier in Montreal, Canada. Nicknamed "The French Bombshell", Fifi started out in The Greenwich Village Follies at age 20. Appearing on vaudeville and in 24 films, Fifi dies at age 79 of cancer. These clips of her are fantastic. I would love to see the full length films. Maybe they'll come out someday.
Fifi will be appearing on TCM:
