Jeanne Moreau

Jeanne Moreau, one of the greatest French film actresses has died at the age of 89. Which is very sad, but of course an excuse to show again those many films in which she gave stunning performances. One of my favourites was one little known and starred also Leo McKern and Alec Guinness - the latter playing a brain damaged war veteran - making a trip back to the Normandy battlefields. She played a girl that forty years before they had fallen in love with. Most wonderful comedy like a real life 'Hallo Hallo' but full of aching pathos. So RIP Jeanne Moreau - but whoever knew you were the daughter of a Tiller girl from Oldham?
Certainly not me. SadSad

Camilla's Avatar Very sad Fennie. She was a beautiful actress RIP Jeanne Moreau.
I note that she never had any children during her lifetime. I am sure I have seen one of her films but can't remember which one now.
