Despite her elaborate plans for a secret wedding, witnessed only by a few friends, a crowd of 300 was waiting as she arrived at the back entrance of the Town Hall.
She said she had changed cars three times on the way to the ceremony in an effort to throw her fans off the scent.
Francoise Sagan, a best-selling authoress for several years, shot to fame with her novel, "Bonjour, Tristesse."
The girl who, on the strength of three short books and a ballet with a daring bathroom scene, became almost the symbol of French youth, married 42-year-old M. Schoeller within two days of saying there would be no marriage until next week.
For her own wedding, the girl who wrote about broken marriages and illicit love against a Riviera background, chose the Town Hall of the Parts 17th Arrondissement, in a quarter of seedy and shabby bars and third-into hotels, not far from the rail terminus of St. Lazaro.
