–Claudette Colbert in Midnight.
Actress Claudette Colbert, née Lily Claudette Chauchoin, was born in Paris, directly under the rising line of her Primary Mercury: a symbol that describes the “skillful use of the spoken word” (a useful talent, indeed, for actors and actresses). Relocating with her family to the United States when she was only five years old, Colbert pursued a career in design, but, once she was offered minor parts in the theater and in films, she then developed a serious interest in acting.
After signing a contract with Paramount in 1930, Colbert found herself under her Secondary Neptune, which rises over Hollywood. In this Transcendental location, she realized professional success in films such as Cecil B. DeMille’s The Sign of the Cross (1932) and Cleopatra (1934), and in Frank Capra’s It Happened One Night (1934): a witty, sophisticated romantic comedy for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. Afterward, she continued to act in “smart” roles (Primary Mercury) in which she easily “matched wits” (Mercury) with Hollywood’s leading men. One of the most “versatile” (Mercury) actresses of the golden age, Colbert appeared in numerous films throughout the ’40s and ’50s, and then retired from the cinema to apply her talents to the Broadway stage.
