Marie-Louise Camille Basset ( known as Gaby Basset) is a French actress born on March 29, 1902 in Varennes-Saint-Sauveur (Saône-et-Loire) and died on 7 October 2001 in Neuilly-sur-Seine (Hauts-de-Seine). She was married to Jean Gabin from 1925 to 1929. In the 1920s Chez Fysher attracted more and more lesbians. The star until 1927 was Gaby Montbreuse, a busty redheaded singer whose biggest success was You possessed me by surprise. Fisher's stars that followed were: Yvonne George, Damia, Marie Dubas, Arletty, Lucienne Boyer, Lys Gauty, Gaby Basset.
Gaby Basset started out as a shorthand typist before turning her career on cabaret and music hall where she met Jean Gabin. They married on February 26, 1925 at the town hall of the 18th arrondissement. They perform successfully in operettas, but work overwhelms them and they see themselves quite little. In 1929, Jean Gabin began an affair with his partner Jacqueline Francell. Divorce is consummated at the end of the year. Although amicably separated, they shot their first film Each His Chance in 1930. Gabin never forgets the one he nicknamed "Pepette": when he once again became one of the most sought-after French film actors after the war, he arranged for her to have a small role in her films.. She died a few months before her 100th birthday and was buried in Mazeyrat-d'Allier (Haute-Loire) with her third husband, Auguste Chapon, who was married on 20 October 1962 in Neuilly-sur-Seine.
