Alain Delon

Alain Delon (born November 8, 1935) is a French actor, one of the best known outside his native country.

Delon was born in Sceaux, France. His breakthrough as a film star came with Plein Soleil, a 1962 adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's Talented Mr Ripley. He also gave tremendous performances in Lucino Visconti's "The Leopard" and, perhaps his finest moment, "Le Samourai". His later work has not reached these hights, and his decline is characteristic of the nouvelle vague of French actors, such as Jean-Paul Belmondo.

After a string of box office disasters in the 1980s and 1990s, culminating in the unexpected failure of Patrice Leconte's film Une Chance sur deux, Alain Delon announced his decision to give up acting in 1997. In 1969, Delon and his wife were at the center of a massive scandal when their bodyguard was found shot dead in a garbage dump.
