A french adaptation of The Talented Mr. Ripley starring Alain Delon

To all you Alain Delon fans (and yes, I am one of you), maybe you have rediscovered some of his work as of late, thanks to his recent Dior ads and if you did, I hope you didn’t miss out on “Purple Noon/Plein Soleil” (1960) : the French adaptation of Patricia Highsmith novel “The Talented Mr. Ripley”. Rene Clement is the director. Other films to his credit are “Gervaise” (1956) & “Forbidden Games” (1952).
The film threw him into the spotlight and was then closely followed by his work on Visconti’s “Rocco & His Brothers” (1961). I honestly think it was one of the best performances of career, both playful and intense.  It received the seal of approval of the writer herself and enjoyed a pretty strong cult following.
Check out the film posters that sprang out from that era, all over Europe and…enjoy.

NB- Check out Alain Delon & Alain Verneuil, on the set of Le Clan des Siciliens (1969) here.
