Girl of the Riviera

According to IMDb, the sweet girl in the net, Claudia Lebail or Claudia Le Bail,appeared in only one film.

She played a supporting part in the French comedy Le gendarme de Saint-Tropez/The Troops of St. Tropez (Jean Girault, 1954). This is the film that turned French funnyman Louis De Funès into an international star.

Le gendarme de Saint-Tropez was the first of his Gendarme comedies with Michel Galabru and Jean Lefebvre and also the first of his great hit comedies of the 1960s and 1970s.

De Funès played the ambitious police officer Cruchot, who is transferred to the sea resort of St. Tropez. He's struggling with persistent nude swimmers. Claudia Lebail only had a small part in the film.

The following year Claudia appeared with her clothes on in Playboy magazine of July 1965. With several other starlets she was featured in a pictorial called Girls of the Riviera.

That was all we could find about Claudia Lebail. We love the postcard.
