Simone Signoret has played so many prostitutes in movies, that it is impossible for me to summarize them all in half a page. In fact from 1946 to 1952 she played a prostitute on average once every two years. Simone could have added another hooker role to her film repertoire. Madame Hortense from the movie Zobra The Greek. But she withdrew from the part after a few days of filming. Simone is currently tied with Sophia Loren as the Oscar winner for playing the most hooker roles. Six of them. Sophia just needs to play a hooker one more time to be the all time champ.

In Macadam (aka “Back Streets of Paris”) Simone plays a hooker named Gisele. She works out of the Hotel Bijou. Though other streetwalkers are piling their trade from the same location, Gisele is different. She oozes class and style. This is strictly a supporting role.

Four years later Simone would play a much substantial hooker role in Dédée d’Anvers. The plot is familiar as a hooker vows to leave her profession for the man she loves.
