Lili Damita was a French-American actress, best remembered today for whom she married than for the movies in which she appeared. When the sound revolution arrived in Hollywood, all of the studio's scrambled to find actors who could speak lines and record well. It was at this time Lili burst onto the scene. While her accent would always be quite noticeable, the novelty of sound overcame the quality of lines uttered. In the MGM movie The Bridge of San Luis Rey (1929), she played against Ernest Torrence as his love interest. In 1931, she was cast with Gary Cooper in the early western La grande caravane (1931). After that, her career was almost over as she continued to make only a few other movies over the next few years. In 1935, she married a hell raiser by the name of Errol Flynn. This rocky tempestuous union lasted until 1942.
