40 Beautiful Portrait Photos of June Duprez in the 1930s and ’40s

Born 1918 in Teddington, Middlesex, English film actress June Duprez began acting in her adolescence. She appeared in The Crimson Circle (1936), The Cardinal (1936), and had a small role in The Spy in Black (1939), but it was the adaptation of A.E.W. Mason’s The Four Feathers (1939), that made her a film star. Her peak of success came with the fantasy film The Thief of Bagdad (1940).

Clifford Odets’ grim None But the Lonely Heart (1944), in which Duprez co-starred with Cary Grant and Ethel Barrymore, started a brief return to films of higher production values. Duprez joined an ensemble cast in René Clair’s film version of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None (1945). The same year, she appeared opposite John Loder in The Brighton Strangler. In the Calcutta (1947), she starred with Alan Ladd, Gail Russell, and William Bendix.

After a few more motion pictures, Duprez moved to New York City for a brief career on and off Broadway. She appeared in “The Last Tycoon,” an episode of the TV show Robert Montgomery Presents in 1951, and her final credited film performance was in One Plus One (1961), also titled Exploring the Kinsey Reports.

Duprez died in London after a long period of illness in 1984 at the age of 66. Take a look at these vintage photos to see the beauty of young.
