There was high excitement reverberating in 1939 from the proposed new film, “LE CORSAIRE” (directed by Marc Allégret)with Charles Boyer and the gorgeous Louis Jourdan.
But it was not to be, and after only a month of shooting, production ceased in September 1939 as France began to prepare for war. All that remains of LE CORSAIRE is a collection of random and unedited film sequences and the pictures shot on the set by photographer Raymond Voinquel, whose images of Louis Jourdan (erroneously labeled on publication as Pierre Jordan).
You might also remember Jourdan as Kamal Kahn in James Bond’s Octopussy (1983), Gigi (1958) and Letters From an Unknown Woman (1948). Check out the gorgeous shots here.
I am not the author of these images, all rights go to Raymond Voinquel.
