Giselle Marie Madeleine Tallone (Giselle Pascal), actress: born Cannes, France 17 September 1921; married 1955 Raymond Pellegrin (one daughter); died Nîmes, France 2 February 2007.
Before he married the glamorous American film star Grace Kelly in what was described as "The Wedding of the Century" in 1956, Prince Rainier of Monaco had a well-documented 10-year liaison with the equally attractive French actress Giselle Pascal.
Snobbery certainly also played a part in Rainier's wavering and eventual decision, since Pascal came from humble Italian stock and had worked in her parents' grocery as a child.
After her break-up with Rainier, Pascal was linked with Gary Cooper in 1953, the year she portrayed the French pilot Hélène Boucher - who held seven world records and died in a plane crash in 1934 - in Horizons sans fin (Endless Horizons), arguably her best film.
Gisèle Pascal died on 2 February 2007, aged 85, in Nîmes, France.
Princess Antoinette, Baroness of Massy, Rainier's sister, seeking to obtain the throne of Monaco for her own son, spread malicious rumors that Pascal was incapable of bearing children.

These are essential elements of La Femme Publique (The Public Woman), Andrzej Zulawksi's 6th film, where the obsessive themes of his dazzling career Trzecia Czesc Nocy (The Third Part of the Night,1971), L'Important C'est D'aimer (The Important Thing is to Love,1975), and Possession (1981) become entangled.
ANDRZEJ ZULAWSKI's La Femme Publique is a cinematic milestone rich with extreme imagery and raw emotions.
