Patachou was born on Jun 10, 1918 in France. Patachou's big-screen debut came with Le champignon des Carpathes directed by Jean-Claude Biette in 1989.

Patachou was born Henriette Ragon on 10 June 1918. Born and brought up in Paris she had many jobs, including typist, shop assistant, and antique dealer. In 1948, she and her husband Jean Billon opened a nightclub in Montmarte called Patachoi. She began her singing career there, so journalists gave her the nickname Patachou after the establishment. A mentor to many younger singers, she was principally known as an international vocalist, but she made a handful of films before her death in 2015.
