Zaza is a play, originally written by French playwrights Pierre Berton and Charles Simon, but probably best known in the English-speaking world in the 1898 adaptation by David Belasco. The title character is a prostitute who becomes a music hall entertainer and the mistress of a married man. According to the IMDb, it was produced on stage and in film six times between 1913 and 1956. The IMDB's best-documented instance is the 1939 production starring Claudette Colbert as Zaza, Herbert Marshall as the man whose mistress she becomes, and Bert Lahr as her music-hall partner.
