When speaking of French actors,many people will think of a jubilant Maurice Chevalier, a pouting Jean Gabin,a haunting Jean Marais, a rebellious Jean Paul Belmondo or even a wholesome Gerard Depardieu.But no one can
deny that Alain Delon was
absolutely one of the most beautiful actors that has ever graced the silver screen and he was also one of the most talented.

He has given brilliant performances that were timeless and thought provoking; though his acting abilities  have often been dismissed by critics who can't seem to see past his extraordinary visage nor comprehend his wordless performances. His contribution to the French cinema should not  be  ignored.

Alain had his first big success in the Tom Ripley role in "Plein Soleil". This role was later re-created by Matt Damon.During this time, he met and fell in love with a famous Austrian actress: Romy Schneider.
Luchino Visconti casted him as Rocco in "Rocco e i souil fratelli"in 1960. The film went on to win the Special Jury Prize at Cannes that year.
