Born in April 1919 Buydens spent the early years of her life in Hanover, Germany, before making a big move as a teenager. In fact, her family packed their bags for Belgium during that period. From there, the future film publicist carried on with her studies, ahead of another relocation, this time to Switzerland.
Buydens’ journey across Europe didn’t end there, though, as she then moved to the French capital. Thanks to her multi-lingual skills, she got a job as a movie subtitler at this point. The Hanover native subsequently plied her trade as a publicist in the early 1950s, which led to her meeting Douglas.
Born in late 1916 Issur Danielovitch grew up in Amsterdam, New York, with his parents Herschel and Bryna. They’d moved to America from their original home of Chavusy, a town located in the old Russian Empire. And they really struggled for money during their son’s early years.
