Pati Behrs & then husband, the actor John Derek, 1950.
Behrs was a Prima Ballerina and grandniece of Leo Tolstoy. Born in Russia, her family fled to Paris when her father refused to take part in pogroms. During World War II she was a dancer in Parisian Night clubs while at the same time doing all she could to harbor Russian Jews and gypsies from the Nazis.
Behrs received a Hollywood contract after the war and emigrated to the United States where she met and married John Derek and had two children.
The couple divorced in 1955 when Derek left Behrs for the 19 year old actress Ursula Andress.
