Mini Biography

At the beginning of his career, Dirk Bogarde turned down an offer from Fox, who wanted to turn him into its new Spanish star and marry him off to one of its starlets, and instead signed a contract with Rank. In the 1960s, he moved to France and became a star of films by Visconti, Fassbinder, Cavani and other European directors. Bogarde was also a novelist and serial autobiographer.
