Biography

B-film lead who decorated five of RKO's "Falcon" detective films before signing with Universal to perform similar duties in Max Ophuls' "The Exile" (1947). Briefly using the professional names Paule and Rita Croset, Rita Corday eventually became Paula Corday when she played second leads in such light fare as "Because You're Mine" and "You for Me" (both 1952). Corday decorated two Boris Karloff chillers: she played the romantic lead in "The Black Castle" (1952) and a young mother desperately trying to arrange surgery for her crippled daughter in producer Val Lewton's "The Body Snatcher" (1945). After marrying producer Harold Nebenzal in 1954, Corday retired from the screen, making only occasional TV appearances thereafter.
