The details

Gina Manès (7 April 1893 — 6 September 1989) was a French film actress and a major star of French silent cinema. After an early appearance in a film of Louis Feuillade, she had significant roles in films of Jean Epstein, including Cœur fidèle, and of Germaine Dulac. In Abel Gance's Napoléon, she took the part of Joséphine de Beauharnais, and then played the title role in Jacques Feyder's Thérèse Raquin (now lost). She made the transition to sound films but during the 1930s her roles diminished in importance, and periods of residence in Morocco took her further from the public eye. She continued to take small roles in films, and also worked in the circus and in the theatre. In total Manès appeared in over 90 films between 1916 and 1966.
