      a child model who debuted with Ziegfeld at the age of 13. Paulette became famous with the Ziegfeld show as the girl on the crescent moon and was married to a wealthy man by the time she was 16. After her divorce, she went to Hollywood in 1931 where she appeared in small roles for a number of studios. A natural beauty, Paulette could impress any man she met and she was certainly the girl with sex appeal. One of her bigger roles was when she appeared as a blond "Goldwyn Girl" in the Eddie Cantor film 'The Kid from Spain (1932)'. In 1932, she met Chaplin, Charlie and they became an item around town. Charlie cast her in Modern Times (1936) which was a big hit, but her movie career was not going anywhere due to her relationship with Chaplin. Secretly married in 1936, the marriage failed and they were separated by 1940. It was her role as Miriam Aarons in Women, The (1939) that got her a contract with Paramount. Paulette was one of the many actresses tested for the part of "Scarlett" in 'GWTW', but was not chosen and, instead, appeared with Bob Hope in Cat and the Canary, The (1939) - which was not in the same league. The forties was her busiest period. She worked with Chaplin in Great Dictator, The (1940), DeMille in Reap the Wild Wind (1942) and Burgess Meredith in Diary of a Chambermaid, The (1946). She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in So Proudly We Hail! (1943). In the early forties, she was one of Paramount's top stars. But that star faded in the late forties and she was dropped by Paramount in 1949. After a couple of 'B' movies, she left films and went to live in Europe where she married German Novelist Erich Maria Remarque in the late fifties. She was coaxed back to the screen once more, although it was the small screen, for the 1972 Television movie Snoop Sisters, The (1972) (TV).
