Junie Astor (1911 - 1967) was a French actress who was highly popular in the late 1930's.

Born in Marseille, 21 december 1911, Junie Astor, real name Rolande Risterucci, was obliged to learn classic ballet which she abandoned for lessons at the Conservatoire National Superieur d’Art Dramatique. This formation permitted her to have her debut on stage in the play Lundi 8 heures at the Theatre des Ambassadeurs in 1933, in company of Julien Carette. The same year Junie Astor also started in cinema with D’amour et d’eau fraiche, with Fernandel. The beautiful newcomer made her mark in Ademai aviateur (1934) by Jean Tarride and with Noel-Noel. From then on, she played one (supporrting) part after another, such as in Tovarich (1934) by Jacques Deval and with Andre Lefaur and Irene de Zilahy, Mayerling (1936) by Anatole Litvak and with Charles Boyer and Danielle Darrieux, and with Danielle Darrieux, Valentine Tessier, Eve Francis, Betty Stockfeld in Club de femmes (1936) by Jacques Deval. On the instigation of producer Alexander Kamenka, Astor played Jean Gabin's love interest in Jean Renoir’s liberal adaptation of Gorki’s The Lower Depths: Les bas-fonds (1936), though the real leads were for Gabin as the bum and thief Pepel and Louis Jouvet as the impoverished Baron. Years after Renoir gave a severe critique, condemning Astor as non-photogenic.

Not everybody thought that way, though, because her role in Le coupable (1936) by Raymond Bernard won Junie Astor the prestigious Prix Suzanne Bianchetti for the most promising female acting talent of the year. (NB Bianchetti had been an actress in silent cinema, her husband the critic Rene Jeanne had created the award.) Despite the award Astor had to satisfy with supporting roles, though she had an active career in the 1930s, with the most important directors of those times, such as the Marcel Achard adaptation Noix de coco (Jean Boyer 1939) with Raimu and Marie Bell, and Battement de c?ur (Henri Decoin 1940) with Danielle Darrieux and Claude Dauphin. She also tried her luck in Italy in 1939-1940 with films such as Tutto per la donna (Mario Soldati 1940) with Antonio Centa, even if these were not shown in France. In 1943 she also acted in L’eternel retour by Jean Delannoy and with Madeleine Sologne and Jean Marais.

March 1942, together with Danielle Darrieux, Suzy Delair, Rene Dary, Albert Prejean and Viviane Romance, Junie Astor was part of the so-called ‘train of shame’ for Berlin, in occasion of the premiere of Premier rendez-vous by Henri Decoin and with Danielle Darrieux and of a visit to the Berlin film studios. If Danielle Darrieux’ presence was understandable, for she wanted to liberate her husband Porfirio Rubirosa, one wonders why the other actors, working for the Franco-German Continental company, accepted to join this masquerade set up to legitimize the regime. At the Liberation Astor had a last major role in Du Guesclin (1948), starring Fernand Gravey, and directed by Bernard de La Tour. Astor married De la Tour and they founded Astor Production, but the promising initiative didn’t struck ground – the marriage neither (they split after six years). Astor nevertheless joined Raymond Pellegrin in Coupable? (1950) and Eddy Constantine, Noel-Noel and Jean Richard in the comedy Les truands (Carlo Rim 1956). She also played in Maurice Boutel’s Interpol contre X (1960) and L’homme de l’Interpol (1965), but these B-series policiers didn’t help her career. In the 1950s Astor returned to the stage in Ombre chere (1952) by Jacques Deval and with Robert Lamoureux. Tired of her profession Astor focused on the exploitation of two Parisian cinemas, Astor and Rio Opera. While finishing Joe Caligula (1966) by Jose Benazeraf and with Gerard Blain, a film that for a long time would remain forbidden by the French censure, Junie Astor died at the age of 55 years, because of a car accident that occurred 22 august 1967 in Sainte-Magnance dans l’Yonne. She lies buried at the cemetery of Bagneux.
