Here’s a story of serendipity.  Today I was reading about the Grammy Award Show to be aired February 13, 2011. I was checking  to see who will be performing. I learned that tonight will be Mick Jagger’s first in-person Grammy appearance. Thinking about Mick led me to look for some information about him. In the course of that pursuit I discovered this photo of Mick Jagger, Marianne Faithfull and Alain Delon. Total serendipity!

Mick Jagger, Marianne Faithfull and Alain Delon

While the photo is undated it was probably circa 1968 when Mr. Delon and Ms Faithfull worked together in La Motocyclette.

I am always excited to find photos of Mr. Delon that I haven’t seen before. This photo raises so many question- Where would the three of them have been together? What are Marianne and Alain looking at? What is Mick thinking?  Is Mr. Delon wearing a wedding ring? Wasn’t he divorced by that time?

I have also concluded that like Kevin Bacon we are never more than a few degrees away from Alain Delon!

I found the following statement about Mr. Delon in The Daily La Reunion which is a daily French regional news source for the island of Reunion.

“Alain Delon come there to Reunion? Southern Hemisphere has signed the actor came to the island for his latest play. It remains to find a theater …”

I know that in the world of movies and theater it is a always a long way from an initial idea and a plan coming to fruition. If you have any other information about this project please leave a comment.

Brigitte Bardot’s tribute to Maria Schneider was read by Alain Delon at Maria’s funeral in Paris on February 10, 2011. Maria died on February 3 at the age of 58 after a long illness. Brigitte Bardot, in whom the actress had found a confidante and who called her every Sunday, described Maria’s insurgent “who had found her” mother “.

Elise Servier (see photos) is currently starring in  A typical day with Mr. Delon.

While Maria Schneider may be best known world wide for her work in Bernardo Bertulucci’s Last Tango in Paris (1972) with Marlon Brando,  her first film was with Brigitte Bardot in the film Les femmes (1969). In the same year she appeared in Terence Young’s L’arbre de Noël. Her next movie was Madly with Alain Delon and Mireille Darc in 1970.

Thanks to Lainconnu for sharing the link for this poignent tribute to Maria-

from News of the Stars- Currently Bouffes-Parisiens Theatre to present his play A typical day in which he played opposite his daughter, Alain Delon is forced to cancel a second night of performance due to illness.

Alain Delon plays since 21 January, with her daughter Anouk and Elisa Servier, in a typical day at the Theatre des Bouffes-Parisiens.

We announced in a previous article, Alain Delon, suffering from a stomach flu, was unable to play last night.

The health status of the actor does not inspire concern and simply requires rest. However, he was forced to cancel a second time representation of the show, and will not play tonight.

Tickets will be refunded or changed for another performance.

Alain and Anouchka received a little surprise. Mouloud Achour’s Mouloud Daily featured Anthony Delon. Anthony Delon took great delight in teasing his father by embarking on an exaggerated imitation of the latter.
