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.

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. He died of leukemia in 1977. 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. He also appeared in the Over-the-Hill Gang and as "Coyote Bill" in Myra Breckenridge. 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. He starred in a Twilight Zone episode as "Frisby", a talkative braggart faced with an alien invasion called "Hocus-Pocus and Frisby". He also gave tremendous performances in Lucino Visconti's "The Leopard" and, perhaps his finest moment, "Le Samourai". He also had a part as "Hap" on Flipper and hosted a children's TV show, Andy's Gang, and performed voice parts in animated films, including "Friar Tuck" in Disney's Robin Hood.

His breakthrough as a film star came with Plein Soleil, a 1962 adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's Talented Mr Ripley. Devine is well-remembered for his role as "Jingles" in the US radio and TV series Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (1951). Delon was born in Sceaux, France. He played "The Cheerful Soldier" in The Red Badge of Courage. Alain Delon (born November 8, 1935) is a French actor, one of the best known outside his native country. His notable roles included ten films as sidekick, "Cookie", to Roy Rogers, a Shakespeare performance in Romeo and Juliet in 1937, Stagecoach with John Wayne in 1939 and a reunion with Wayne in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance in 1959. He had been running with a stake in his mouth and fell, the instrument piercing the roof of his mouth.

Devine's speech was the result of a childhood accident. Although it was at first thought that his peculiar voice would prevent him from moving to the talkies, it became his trademark and strongest selling point. He was a star football player at Santa Clara University, which led to his first film role in the silent The Collegians. He grew up in Kingman, Arizona, where his family moved when he was a year old. He appeared in more than 400 films and shared with Walter Brennan the rare ability to move with ease from B Westerns to A pictures.

Devine was born in Flagstaff, Arizona. His movie career started in silent films and extended until his death. Andy Devine (born Jeremiah Schwartz) (October 7, 1905 - February 18, 1977) was a rotund, raspy-voiced character actor and comic cowboy sidekick. When asked if he had strange nodes on his vocal chords, Devine replied, "I've got the same nodes as Bing Crosby, but his are in tune.".
