    Madeleine Solonge (1912-1995) is best known for her role in Cocteau's 1943 film, L' Eternal Retour, where she starred alongside Jean Marais. A sculpted blonde beauty who personified the modern spirit of the age, her performance as Nathalie alongside the handsome Marais made them the fêted couple of the 1940s, but it was perhaps the strength and power of this role that has been seen as typecasting her, although she did continue to act until the 1960s.
