A fabulous actress and always came across as a really nice human being.

RIP Jeanne

Major part of French film history.

I thought she'd died years ago I have to say.
One of the great figures of French cinema.
My favourite performance of hers is in Lift to the Scaffold, she's spellbinding in that.

That's the second night in a row I've done that! I think I'm losing my marbles. :shock:

I read about this yesterday. The obit said some called the French Bette Davis, but I didn't think that was so accurate.

There was a time in my '20s that I was a real sucker for French films, especially new wave and remember lots of Moreau movies.

I don't get wistful when celebrities die, usually, but I did with her.
