For when you have a few hours to spare and if you like Euro-glamour and movies and stars - a fascinting archive of Alain Delon photos with lots from the 50s and 60s when the glamour factor is ramped high.
Its 193 pages, but Page 8, at link, has a fascinating one of Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner meeting him in France in 1978. Nat looks clearly taken with him, while RJ's cheesy grin is looking the other way wondering if anyone is looking at him ?
Lots with Delon's on-off love Romy Schneider too. plus with Katharine Hepburn, and Lauren Bacall looking very glamorous - must have been about 20 years ago - and some terrific gif images from Plein Soleil/Purple Noon and others.
Odd seeing he older Delon too, age is catching up with him now.
Wow, thank you so much for that OP. I enjoy it a lot so far!
Nat and Wagner were doing Europe that summer, they were also at Dirk Bogarde's hideaway home in the south of France where Dirk lived with his partner.
Love the shot of Delon in the car with Sophia Loren and Romy Schneider. Imagine driving those 3 around - it was the Cannes Film Festival in 1962.
I can't possibly see all these now, but will return to them.
Do any present day stars compare? Will we/they be looking at comparable archives on Gerard Butler or Bradley Cooper in say 20 years? No, I didn't think so either ...
LOL, look at how he cringes away from Visconti.
Which page is the Bacall one on ?
Do we know what Alain's "dique" looks like?
He looks like a cross between James Dean and Eddie Furlong.
He was much prettier than I was, wasn't he?
Visconti was his mentor r3 as he put him in 2 prestige pictures that made his name: Rocco and his Brothers, in 1960, and The Leopard with Burt in 1963. Visconti also directed him and Schneider in a play in Paris. So I imagine Alain was good friends with the Italian maestro - before Helmut Berger came on the scene.
There is another shot with Natalie Wood on the next page, 9.
He seems much sexier in the movie moments than in the stills.
His little boy was adorable, too.
I must dig out Purple Noon again ! and The Leopard, and those 60s crime thrillers he did.
Do you think that Robert Wagner wanted to fuck Alain?
Do you think Alain Delon wanted to fuck Robert Wager?
Anyone else hear that President Pompidou and Alain Delon had a thing going?
There is a Helmut Newton nude of Delon somewhere.
I'm sorry I was born too late to see Alain Delon in full in drag.
