“Even in silent pictures, however, I spoke very little English. The directors always asked that I speak French because of the little shrug of the shoulders and other mannerisms which established my nationality. Funny, when I think of it, I couldn’t speak English very well until after I had been here for several months.” – Yola D’Avril in Hollywood.
Those Three French Girls (1930). With Sandra Ravel and Fifi D’Orsay.
