Simone Mareuil (French pronunciation: ​[simɔn maʁøj]; 25 August 1903 – 24 October 1954) was a French actress best known for appearing in the surrealist film Un Chien Andalou.[1]

Born Marie Louise Simone Vacher in Périgueux, Dordogne, she appeared in a number of films, most notably director Luis Buñuel's Un Chien Andalou (An Andalusian Dog, 1929). She was the second wife of actor Philippe Hersent.[2][3]

After World War II, she returned to Périgueux, where she fell into a deep depression.[4][5] She committed suicide by self-immolation — dousing herself in gasoline and burning herself to death in a public square.[6][7][8][9]
