Beautiful Photos of Nadine Tallier as an Actress in the 1950s

Born 1932 as Nadine Nelly Jeannette Lhopitalier in Saint-Quentin, Aisne, French author and former actress Nadine de Rothschild became the model of the painter Jean-Gabriel Domergue, a socialite who opened the door for her to the worlds of theater and film at 16. In 1952, she began her acting career under the pseudonym of Nadine Tallier and played various roles from 1952 to 1964.

In 1962, two years before ending her career in film, Tallier married Edmond Adolphe de Rothschild of the French branch of the Rothschild family. At the time, Edmond was chairman and principal owner of the Edmond de Rothschild Group, a private banking group headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. They had one son born in 1963, Benjamin de Rothschild, shortly after their marriage. Following her husband’s death in 1997, David Rockefeller proposed to her but she refused.

Tallier wrote a book about manners (Le Bonheur de Séduire l’Art de Réussir) and her autobiography (La baronne rentre à cinq heures). In addition, she provided some reviews in the press on the same subject. In 2004, she opened the Nadine de Rothschild International Way of Life Academy in Geneva, Switzerland.

In 2014, Tallier held 17% of the holding’s capital and 7% of the voting rights of Edmond de Rothschild Group. In disagreement with her daughter-in-law Ariane de Rothschild, she transferred her share of the family fortune to the Swiss private bank Pictet in 2014 and 2019.

Take a look at these vintage photos to see the beauty of young Nadine Tallier as an actress in the 1950s.
