Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,

Françoise Dorléac


Here are two Brazilian songs performed by Sylvia Telles, chosen to enhance the beauty of the legendary Françoise Dorléac, who starred namely in the cult movie "That man from Rio".
Françoise Dorléac (1942 – 1967) was a French actress, too early and tragically disappeared.
Born in Paris, she was the daughter of screen actor Maurice Dorléac and Renée Deneuve, and the elder sister of Catherine Deneuve. The two sisters starred together in the 1967 musical, "Les Demoiselles de Rochefort" (starring Gene Kelly). Her films include Philippe de Broca's movie "L'homme de Rio" (with Jean-Paul Belmondo), François Truffaut's "La peau douce" and Roman Polanski's "Cul-de-Sac". Francoise Dorléac was killed when she lost control of the rented car she was driving and hit a sign post ten kilometers from Nice at the end of the Esterel-Côte d'Azur motorway. The car flipped over, and burst into flames. She had been en route to Nice airport and was afraid of missing her flight. Dorléac was seen struggling to get out of the car, but was unable to open the door. Police later identified her body only from the fragment of a cheque book, a diary and her driving license.
Dorléac had intended to fly to Paris, then on to London to complete work on the film "Billion-Dollar Brain" (with Michael Caine). She was then to have stayed in Britain for the premiere of "The Young Girls of Rochefort". She was only 25 years old! Her death caused an incurable shock to her sister Catherine Deneuve. She was a most promising actress and her beauty (she had been a great model) will never be forgotten.
Enjoy Françoise Dorléac's elegance and chic!
