The Popov Girls

 Janine Ducasse.
Popov dated Hollywood leading lady Simone Simon while she was filming the 1942 box office blockbuster, Cat People.  Simon played a Serbian character who's middle name was "Dubrovna"— a subtle nod to her Serbian boyfriend from Dubrovnik?  The film's gross sales far exceeded another 1942 film, Casablanca.
