Rita Cadillac

Rita Cadillac (born Nicole Yasterbelsky; 18 May 1936, Paris – 5 April 1995, Deauville) was a French dancer, singer, and actress.

Cadillac started her music career as an accordionist under the alias "Rita Rella" at the age of 13. In 1952, she was a pin-up model and took the name "Rita Cadillac" (possibly as an allusion to her prominent breasts)[1] at Crazy Horse where she began to work as an exotic dancer.[1][2] She was also a dancer of Folies Bergère in the 1950s.

Cadillac appeared in many French films such as Soirs de Paris (1954), Porte océane (1958), La prostitution (1962),[2] Un clair de lune à Maubeuge (1962), and Any Number Can Win (1963), becoming a renowned figure throughout Europe. In 1981, she appeared in the miniseries and film Das Boot, as the club singer Monique, in the town of La Rochelle.
