Jeanne Moreau has died. One of the most beautiful women of 20th-Century film.
That is so sad. I just found out about this while reading about Sam Shepherd’s death. What a terrible day for cinephiles. I saw Moreau just a few months ago in Luis Bunuel’s Diary of a Chambermaid. She was absolutely stunning as usual. Au revoir, ma belle.
I recently watched The Lovers where she was beautiful, mysterious, and very sexy for 1958; there’s some nudity, unusual for the time. It was the movie that Justice Potter (SCOTUS) said "“I know it (pornography) when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that.” Thank you Justice Potter!
Definitely one of the best French actress there was.
Adieu, ma belle. Sam Shepard, too.
I was thinking earlier that two REALLY UGLY people better have died today, to keep the universe in balance.
Good singer as well. Love this duet with Yves Duteil.
