Film to Broadway


Before the end of 1951, Audrey had been cast in five movies:  One Wild Oat, Young Wives’ Tale, Laughter In Paradise, The Lavender Hill Mob and Secret People. 

Audrey was then offered a small role in a film being shot in both English and French called Monte Carlo Baby (Nous Irons A Monte Carlo). With the double joy of going on location and wearing Christian Dior gowns, Audrey jumped at the opportunity. Little did she know it would be a decision that would ultimately shape the rest of her life.

The famed writer, Colette, also happened to be in Monte Carlo on an international search for the right actress to star in her Broadway play.  Colette took one look at Audrey and knew immediately that she had finally found her Gigi.
