Actress Jean Seberg

Know her from the films BONJOUR TRISTESSE, LILITH, PAINT YOUR WAGON, AIRPORT and BREATHLESS. A girl from Marshalltown, Iowa picked to play the lead in Otto Preminger's SAINT JOAN which flopped big time. Best known for her international films. One of my favorite films, and one of the few American productions Seberg did, was a Mervyn LeRoy melodrama called MOMENT TO MOMENT . Just read David Richards biography from the 80's, PLAYED OUT. %0D Jean Seberg was married to French politician and author Romain Gary who I believe committed suicide exactly one year after she did. She also had a brief affair with Clint Eastwood when they were shooting PAINT YOUR WAGON.%0D What a sad, sad and controversial life she had. She was very much the activist and that (plus clinical depression)probably lead to her downfall. Not too many of her films are out on DVD and not too many of the 'young'ens' on this site would even know who she was. Jean Seberg wasn't the greatest actress around but she did have a quality. Pretty and wholesome looking yet her life was far from happy and wholesome. I understand that there is a book out now about the FBI tracking Seberg when she was involved with the Black Panther movement in the 60's.%0D Any other DL's remember her?
