CLAUDETTE COLBERT, French-American actress died (b. 1903) Famously said to have been one of Marlene Dietrich’s lovers (well really…who wasn’t?) when she died most of Colbert’s estate, estimated at $3.5 million and including her Manhattan apartment and villa in Barbados, was left to Helen O’Hagan (1931—2020 ), a retired director of corporate relations at Saks Fifth Avenue, whom Colbert had met in 1961 on the set of the actress’s last film, Parrish, with Troy Donahue. The villa was later purchased by David Geffen.
