La Caraque Blonde Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Jacqueline Audry, the director of the 1948 hit Gigi, called the shots on 1954's La Caraque Blonde (The Blonde Gypsy). Tilda Thamar plays the title character, a voluptuous golden-haired gypsy lass named Myra. Rising to fame as a dancer, Myra soon finds herself trapped by her celebrity. She decides to don a brunette wig and travel about incognito -- but just for a while. While thus disguised, Myra falls head over tambourine in love with handsome rice planter Antoine (Roger Pigaut). Their future happiness is threatened by the mean-spirited Pedro ([[Performer~P40323~Gerard Landry~gerardlandry]]), Myra's blackmailing ex-lover. La Caraque Blonde was filmed in the Camarque district, the French equivalent to Chatsworth, California in terms of its overuse on the screen. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
