“What should I say in an interview like this?" Truus asked a reporter very early in her career. "Just write that I wanted to become a film star and now I am one. Write that I just love the work I'm doing and that I'll be a film actress for the rest of my life. And that's basically it!”

This series of pictures was found in Truus' own collection - they seem to be part of a photo shoot to advertise a drink of some sort. There are so many of them they must have had some special meaning for her... maybe just a memory of a lovely day working at the job she loved.

1939

TvA-pic-3900-SITE.jpg

A very direct and slightly unsettling portrait of Truus from 1939 - the year of her last film and the start of the war. It was a time of great stress and uncertainty for Truus, of personal and professional turmoil. Here Truus seems momentarily to have stepped away from performing, from presenting herself as a film actress. Is this the face she herself saw when she looked into the mirror?


1955 or so
