1949. Rope of Sand is Corinne Calvet’s debut Hollywood movie. She plays the part of Suzanne Renaud, the movie’s female lead. Her co-stars include Burt Lancaster and three actors from producer Hal Wallis’ Casablanca – Paul Henreid, Claude Rains and Peter Lorre.
Filming one scene, Corinne feels nauseated and throws up on Lancaster. She’s grateful to him for never mentioning it after she returns the set. Indeed, he gives her suggestions and encouragement. A true gentleman.
