Movie Villains Wiki

Madame LaCroque is the main antagonist of the direct-to-video film Madeline: Lost in Paris. She is the head of a manual lace factory, where she keeps orphaned girls working. She forbids sunlight because it "ruins the lace," and not caring if anyone is sick, always scolds anyone who coughs on the lace. Anyone who inconveniences her will get her hair cut off and it will be used into lace. She is assisted by a failed Shakespearean actor named Henri, who pretends to be Madeline's Uncle Horst from Vienna. LaCroque is voiced by the late Lauren Bacall.

According to a flashback, Madame LaCroque was once a cabaret dancer, but when she accidentally ripped her dress on stage, she had a failure, and because she made no money, she sold her own hair to make lace, and since, she's been wearing a gray wig. This has made her the mean lady she was in the present.
