Today’s Memory – Alain Delon

Alain Delon

born November 8, 1935, Sceaux, Hauts-de-Seine


Alain Fabien Maurice Marcel Delon is a French film actor whose striking good looks helped make him one of the principal male stars of the French cinema in the ’60s and ’70s.

After a brief apprenticeship as a butcher and French marine in Indochina, he attracted the notice of American producer David O. Selznick at the 1957 Cannes film festival but declined a Hollywood contract, preferring instead to serve an apprenticeship with European directors.

Delon had his first starring role in Christine (1958) and quickly won international attention in Plein soleil (1960, Purple Noon), Roccco e i suoi fratelli (1960; Rocco and His Brothers), and Mélodie en sous-sol (1963; Any Number Can Win).

Delon appeared in such diverse English-language motion pictures as The Yellow Rolls-Royce (1964), Texas Across the River (1966), and Red Sun (1971). His subsequent films include Monsieur Klein (1976), Notre histoire (1984; Our Story), Nouvelle vague (1990), and 1 chance sur 2 (1998; Half a Chance).
