D: May 24, 1976 in Montreal, Québec

Denise Pelletier was primarily a stage actor. She began her film career in the classic, Tit-coq. The idea for the film came to its director, Gratien Gélinas in 1947 but plans for the film did not materialize and the screenplay was reworked as a stage play a year later. It was immediately successful and enjoyed over 500 performances in Québec and Eastern Canada over the next three years. When the film was made – it was shot in 1952 and released a year later – it too became a huge hit. It is estimated more than 300,000 people saw it between February and April 1953.
