Beautiful blond Danish showgirl Margaret Rung (ca. 1932) appeared in supporting and small parts in French films of the late 1950’s. Her main claim to fame was dating former King Farouk of Egypt, shortly after his separation from Queen Narriman in 1953.

On 17 March 1953, Danish dancer Margarethe Rung Jorgenson revealed to the press in Rome, that she was the ‘mysterious blonde’ who had been dating former King Farouk of Egypt since his separation from ex-Queen Narriman. This gossip news caused international headlines and photos of the beautiful blonde were sent by radio all over the world. A subscript of a United Press Telephoto described her as a ’22-year-old chorus girl’. American newspaper The Amsterdam Evening Recorder used a wirephoto by AP and described her as a ‘19-year-old dancer’ from Copenhagen. For the photographers she had posed in a tight black sweater. She had told newsmen that she had met Farouk at 12 March, the same night Narriman had taken off for Switzerland. Since then Farouk and Margarethe had been out ‘two or three times’. At the time Rung lived in a room in a small hotel in Rome, which she shared with her sister. This breaking news probably finished the affair but it lead to a break in films for Rung. She was billed as Margarethe Rung when she was cast in the French drama Si tous les gars du monde/If All the Guys in the World... (1956, Christian-Jacque) with Jean Gaven. It must have been her first film. She played a Polish air hostess who cooperates with a German, an American, the Russian Air Force, and a Danish plane to get medicine to a fisher boat on the North Sea of which the whole crew is ill by food poisoning. The film title refers to a poem by Paul Fort that says that if all the men and women in the world would hold hands, happiness would be for tomorrow. The postcard is probably made at the same time, because at the flipside she is credited as Margareth Rung. In 1956 she also appeared in the crime film L'homme et l'enfant/Man and Child (1956, Raoul Andre) starring Eddie Constantine and Juliette Greco. That year she also had a small part in Club de femmes/Club of Women (1956, Ralph Habib) with Nicole Courcel and Dany Carrel.

In 1957, Margaret Rung appeared in four more films. She played a supporting part as one of the beautiful girls around special agent Henri Vidal in Action immediate/To Catch a Spy (1957, Maurice Labro) based on a thriller by Frederic Dard. Next she was seen as an English woman in the French-Italian coproduction Les aventures d'Arsene Lupin/The Adventures of Arsene Lupin (1957, Jacques Becker) with Robert Lamoureux as the famous French literary icon, gentleman-thief Arsene Lupin. In Roger Vadim’s Sait-on jamais.../No Sun in Venice (1957, Roger Vadim), she played a small part as a Venetian countess. Star of the film is Francoise Arnoul as an amoral French girl, who lives in a sumptuous Venetian palazzo as the kept woman of a very rich but undesirable ex-Nazi. Vadim probably did not see the potential of a new Brigitte Bardot in Rung, while her next film was also her last. Escapade (1957, Ralph Habib) was an adventure film based on a novel by Cornell Woolrich. Star of the film was Louis Jourdan, and Rung played a supporting part as a young woman. After two years and seven films Margaret Rung’s career in the French cinema was over. We could not find more biographical information about her. Former King Farouk divorced his Queen Narriman in 1954. While living in exile in Italy, Farouk met opera singer Irma Capece Minutolo, who became his companion. In 2005, she claimed that she married the former King in 1957.
