Legrand began her career in the carnival of 1939 when she participated in a contest organised by the Diario de Cine programme (English: Cinema Diary) at Belgrano Radio. She rose to fame in the late 1930s and early 1940s, during the golden era of the Argentine filming that resembled the Hollywood one. Her film debut was in Educating Niní, which also had the participation of Niní Marshall and Legrand's sister Silvia.
