During the 1940s and 1950s, Morgan became the most popular and sought-after actress in France, appearing in successful costume dramas and romances, such as Marie-Antoinette and Les Orgeuilleux. Her popularity waned in the 1960s with the emergence of the New Wave and the sixties fashion culture, although she was awarded the Légion d’honneur in 1968. In the 1970s, she made a successful transition from film to theatre. Now in retirement, Morgan is free to indulge in her other great passion, painting.
