Pauline Marion Levy was born in Whitestone Landing, Long Island, daughter of Joseph Russell Levy and High Mae Goddard: parents divorced when she was still young and Pauline was raised by her mother, with whom she had a close relationship. In the early years, the two lived in serious economic difficulties, receiving the help of the great-uncle Charles Goddard (brother of the grandfather). The father reappeared in his life in the late thirties, when Goddard was already a famous actress. Initially their relationship seemed good, so much so that they used to go along with the actress’s first films, but later he sued her for a newspaper article in which she denounced her abandonment when she was a child: they will never be reconciled and, at his death, Russell Levy will leave only a dollar in his will.
While attending Washington Irving High School in Manhattan, thanks to her beauty and the help of Uncle Charles, she found a job as a model and, later, from 1924 to 1928, as an actress with the Ziegfeld Follies, with which debuted in the show No foolin in 1926; the following year he made his debut as a theater actress, choosing the name of Paulette and the mother’s maiden name. At the age of sixteen he married a wealthy businessman older than her, wood magnate Edgar James, with whom he lived in North Carolina leading a social life, until the divorce occurred in 1929, following which he received conspicuous foods.
In 1932 he met Charlie Chaplin, with whom he formed an artistic and sentimental partnership that would last for eight years. Chaplin took over his contract with Hal Roach and cast her as co-star of Modern Times, which made Goddard a star. During the filming period she and Chaplin lived in the latter’s house in Beverly Hills. There are still doubts about an actual marriage between the two: in the years of their relationship, both refused to make statements about it, despite the first of the great dictator he had introduced her as his wife. In those years Goddard was vying for the role of Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind, but she lost by a whisker against Vivien Leigh because she could not prove to the producers that she was really married to Chaplin.
Chaplin had other film projects in mind that involved her but she was also slow in planning, fearing to be quickly forgotten by the public, the actress preferred to rely on the famous producer David O. Selznick, thanks to which way to participate in the film all-female Women. The couple split up a few years later and, it is said, the divorce was sanctioned in Mexico in 1942. Chaplin told publicly that he and Goddard had been married in China in 1936, but to friends and family he said that they were not legally married. At that time the actress also attended the composer George Gershwin.
In 1939 Goddard signed a contract with Paramount Pictures and his next film, The Midnight Ghost with Bob Hope, positively marked the career of both. After The Great Dictator, Goddard acted alongside Fred Astaire in the musical Follie of jazz, where he met Burgess Meredith (future performer of Mickey Goldmill, in the film series of Rocky), who became her third husband and with whom she recited again in 1946 in The diary of a maid by Jean Renoir, in which he played the role of an avant-garde waitress who provokes erotic disturbances at the end of the nineteenth century and unleashes some conflicts in the two houses in which she is serving.
In 1944 he obtained his only Oscar nomination, as best supporting actress, for his interpretation of a war nurse in the propaganda film Sisters in arms. In this period he was able to work for three major productions: Redcoats, Wild Wind and Invincibles all under the direction of Cecil B. DeMille. After the contract with Paramount accepts some job offers that bring it to Britain and start working for television.
In 1958 he met the German writer Erich Maria Remarque, author of the famous Nothing new on the western front (1929). The two married and settled in Ronco sopra Ascona, in the Italian part of Switzerland, which the actress left only in 1964, when she traveled to Italy to shoot her latest film, Gli indifferenti (1964) by Francesco Maselli, based on the homonymous novel by Alberto Moravia.
After Remarque’s death in 1970, Goddard became a rich widow who showed great ability to accumulate further wealth. In the eighties he reappeared in New York where he attended various cultural evenings, showing himself alongside artists such as Andy Warhol. Breast cancer was operated. The intervention seemed successful, but with time there were new complications. The actress died in 1990, just under two months before her eightieth birthday. Cremata, his ashes are buried in the cemetery of Ronco, next to the body of Remarque and the ashes of his mother.
