Obit: Cecile Aubry

From the New York Times:
Cécile Aubry, a French actress who had a short but glamorous film career and who later became a writer, creating a children’s television series, died Monday in Dourdan, outside of Paris. She was 81.

Her film career was short-lived, however: she made a half-dozen more movies in Europe, the last in 1960, and when she retired she reportedly said she’d been interested in making movies only for the opportunity to travel. She had married into a powerful Moroccan family in what some sources say was a secret marriage; her husband, Si Brahim El Glaoui, was a son of the pasha of Marrakesh.
