So shocked to know that Françoise Dorléac died so soon.


Françoise Dorléac, who is the elder sister of Catherine Deneuve, who also played the elder twin sister in this film, was killed in a car accident shortly after this film was made.

Truly shocking for me, especially since I just saw the movie on cable.

I remember being a boy and hearing about this on the car radio a few days after it happened. We were on a trip to Montreal, and Jayne Mansfield had also died in a road accident that week, and both deaths were mentioned. At the time, I only knew Françoise Dorléac from Genghis Khan, a movie I was quite fond of at the time, and I was very sad. Years later, when I finally saw Les Demoiselles de Rochefort, it became one of my favorite movies.
