    André Maranne

    Any idea on what was his cause of death?

    That’s great you got to meet them. What year was your encounter with them?

    André Maranne

    Any idea how old she was? I read that she was widowed during WW2 before she met André, making her probably older than him. What year did you meet her? And did you ever get the honour to meet André? I guess the only other reason why their house would go on the market would be because she needed to move into a care home.

    Ideas and possibilities for 2023

    Perhaps alarm bells should be ringing for James Bolam after Dennis Waterman’s unexpected death this week. I thought Bolam would be the first of the original New Tricks lineup to go.

    The DL Prediction Game 2022

    George Pérez is another unique hit for me here.

    Twisted DL

    Replacing Michel Bouquet with Alain Delon and replacing George Pérez with Milan Kundera.

    Jacques Dutronc is doing much better these days than I would have thought. He turns 79 today!

    Kenneth Tsang dead at 87. He played General Moon in Die Another Day. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-10759357/Kenneth-Tsang-dead-aged-87.html

    Ideas and possibilities for 2023

    He may not pass the famousness test but in case he does, 84-yr-old Harris Yulin (Scarface, Clear and Present Danger, Bean) may be one to consider for future years...
  11. The past few decades have been killing off an array of French iconic actors. Following Belmondo’s demise last year as well as Michel Bouquet’s and Jacques Perrin’s in recent weeks, Delon and Trintignant seem like two continuous survivors of a dying generation. Both have been in ailing health for years and both reportedly have had a desire to die for years. Both are also around the dangerous age of ninety. So who will be the last one standing? Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve, Gerard Depardieu etc will likely be around for a lot longer, so as important as they may be to the French cinema too, it’s not as close with them.

    It’s amazing that June Spencer hasn’t been called up yet. She would have to meet the DL criteria, especially since she is biggest in the UK.

    Would Micheline Presle qualify for the DL? She’s relatively famous internationally, not on a major scale, but Michel Bouquet got a BBC obit, so I’d expect Presle to get one too. An icon of French cinema and today still holding at 99 years of age.

    And the two long-time lingerers Delon and Trintignant outlive yet another one!

    Peter Tobin is another one on borrowed time, deserving an entry onto the 2023 DL.
