Danièle Delorme and Jean Gabin in 'Deadlier Than the Male.' Danièle Delorme movies (See previous post: “Danièle Delorme: 'Gigi' 1949 Actress Became Rare Woman Director's Muse.”) “Every actor would like to make a movie with Charles Chaplin or René Clair,” Danièle Delorme explains in the filmed interview (ca. 1960) embedded further below, adding that oftentimes it wasn't up to them to decide with whom they would get to work. Yet, although frequently beyond her control, Delorme managed to collaborate with a number of major (mostly French) filmmakers throughout her six-decade movie career. Aside from her Jacqueline Audry films discussed in the previous Danièle Delorme article, below are a few of her most notable efforts – usually playing naive-looking young women of modest means and deceptively inconspicuous sexuality, whose inner character may or may not match their external appearance.

Rome — Italian director Vittorio De Sica’s 1971 foreign-language film Oscar winner “The Garden of the Finzi-Continis” will be reissued in a digitally restored print funded by Italian fashion label Antony Morato in collaboration with Italo state film entity Istituto Luce-Cinecittà and Vogue magazine, which are world-preeming the fresh version in Rome with an international launch to follow.
Restoration of the “Finzi-Continis” film, which is based on Giorgio Bassani’s largely autobiographical novel about an aristocratic Jewish family in the beautiful Italian town of Ferrara prior to their deportation to Nazi death camps, marks the latest instance of the film and fashion worlds intersecting. A glitzy March 25 gala at Rome’s Casa del Cinema will be attended among others by De Sica family members, by actor Lino Capolicchio — who starred in the film, which also featured Dominique Sanda — and by Vogue Italy editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani.
