Found this interview with Mr. Delon at http://www.ina.fr. The video file is dated June 27, 1988. This interview shows Mr. Delon discussing his accident and surgery with the reporter. He appears very relaxed. He seems to have charmed the nursing staff who all get farewell kisses and are seen leaning out windows as he leaves.
ina.fr’s description of the video:
“Alain DELON interrupted the filming of “Do not wake a sleeping policeman” directed by Jose Pinheiro following an accident during the filming of a scene. Surgery for a ruptured ligament Achilles tendon, he responded to an interview with William LEYMERGIE while leaving the clinic Maussins in Paris’ 19th arrondissement. Interview with a very relaxed DELON smiling and humorous.”
