Maurice Chevalier (1888 – 1972)

Born in Paris. Cabaret singer and screen actor in France before coming to the U.S. in the late 1920s. Thereafter he was in films made in the U.S. and France for the remainder of his career. With a thick French accent, an obsession for romance and a wry sense of humor, there will never be anyone like him!
