Le Samouraï starring Alain Delon as the uber-cool assassin & Nathalie Delon as his main squeeze. Wait a minute, Alain Delon & Nathalie Delon, they have the same last name! Could they be related? Oh yes, they could. Married in '64, made the movie in '67, divorced in '69, same year I got out of high school. Alain was born in '35, which was a long time before me, but he's still alive. He's a little older, but then I'm getting old too. Never occured to me that I might be grouped in with someone who was born in the 30's. Note please that Nathalie's name is not Natalie, it has an H in it, kind of like Mother Theresa.
Because Jean-Pierre Melville is the director, the nightclub singer drives a Camaro, and the head gangster's errand boy rides around in his boss's Cadillac. This is in Paris where four coppers strain the seams of their ordinary, regular size French cars. Ross tells me Melville was famous for wearing a cowboy hat while driving around Paris in a Cadillac convertible.
