Her career flourished during the 1950s and 1960s. For his leading woman, Disney chose Dany Saval, then touted as the "new Brigitte Bardot" for her American debut in the Walt Disney romantic comedy film, Moon Pilot (1962) in the role of Lyrae, a mysterious “foreign” girl who seems to know all about the astronaut's coming mission. She approaches Talbot (played by Tom Tryon) to warn him about possible defects in his spacecraft. The various agencies assume she is a foreign spy. Best known in America as one of a trio of airline stewardesses being shuffled around by Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis in the slapstick comedy Boeing Boeing, in which she played alongside Thelma Ritter, Christiane Schmidtmer and Suzanna Leigh.
Dany Saval retired from the movie and entertainment business in the late 1980s.
In 1965, Saval married composer Maurice Jarre, with whom she had a daughter, Stephanie Jarre. The couple divorced sometime before 1967. Saval currently resides in Paris with her second husband, Michel Drucker.
