Alain Fabien Maurice Marcel Delon ([alɛ̃ dəlɔ̃]; born 8 November 1935) is a French actor and businessman, with French-Swiss dual citizenship since 1999. Delon became one of Europe's most prominent actors and screen "heart throbs" in the 1960s. He achieved critical acclaim for roles in films such as Rocco and His Brothers (1960), Purple Noon (1960), L'Eclisse (1962), The Leopard (1963), Lost Command (1966) and Le Samouraï (1967). Over the course of his career Delon worked with many well-known directors, including Luchino Visconti, Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Pierre Melville, Michelangelo Antonioni and Louis Malle.

Delon acquired Swiss citizenship on 23 September 1999, and the company managing products sold under his name is based in Geneva. He is a citizen of the community of Chêne-Bougeries in the canton of Geneva.

Biography

On 20 March 1959, Delon was engaged to actress Romy Schneider, whom he met when they co-starred in the film Christine (1958).

During their relationship, he had an affair with German actress, singer and model Nico. On 11 August 1962, Nico gave birth to a son, Christian Aaron "Ari", fathered by Delon. The child was raised mostly by Delon's parents.

In December 1963, Schneider and Delon decided to break the engagement.

On 13 August 1964, Delon married Nathalie Barthélemy. Their son, Anthony Delon, was born in September. Delon filed for divorce in late 1967 but they continued to live under the same roof. The couple divorced on 14 February 1969.

In 1968, during the shooting of the film Jeff, he met French actress Mireille Darc with whom he started a 15-year relationship, lasting until 1982.

In 1987, Delon met Dutch model Rosalie van Breemen on the set of the music video for his song "Comme au cinéma" and started a relationship. They had two children: Anouchka (25 November 1990) and Alain-Fabien (18 March 1994). The relationship ended in October 2002.

During an interview in 2013 Delon came out in support of the French far-right political party National Front, saying "The National Front, like the MCG [Geneva Citizens’ Movement] in Geneva, is very important…I encourage it and I perfectly understand it".

Alain Delon lives in Chêne-Bougeries in the Canton of Geneva, Switzerland with his two youngest children.

Alain Delon was good friends with, among others, Argentine world champion boxer Carlos Monzon.


Markovic affair

On 1 October 1968, in the village of Élancourt, Yvelines, on the western outskirts of Paris, the dead body of Stevan Markovic, ex-bodyguard of Delon, was found in a public dump.

Alain Delon and a Corsican gangster Francois Marcantoni came under investigation. One of the factors pointing in that direction was a letter of Stevan Markovic to his brother Aleksandar where he wrote: "If I get killed, it's 100% fault of Alain Delon and his godfather Francois Marcantoni."

Later, the investigation involved the former French Prime Minister (and later President) Georges Pompidou after a few press articles and a testimony of Borivoj Ackov.

He testified that he was present at parties with the wife of Pompidou, Stevan Markovic and Alain Delon.

The death of Stevan Markovic provoked a lot of rumors, suggesting the existence of group sex photos with Pompidou's wife. Pompidou himself accused Louis Wallon and Henri Capitant for using the French espionage service SDECE with an aim to set him up. After becoming President of the Republic, he named Alexandre de Marenches as the head of the SDECE in order to reform it. Assisted by Michel Roussin, his principal private secretary, de Marenches expelled a "secret agent" involved in investigation Jean-Charles Marchiani.


Other legal troubles
In 1969 Delon was given four months in jail by an Italian court for assaulting an Italian photographer.


De Gaulle document
In 1970 it was reported that Delon, through a friend, purchased a copy of the original manuscript of Charles De Gaulle's 1940 speech to the French encouraging them to resist the Germans. Delon paid 300,000 francs for the manuscript then returned it to the government.

Cédric Saint Guérande, dit « CSG », est le présentateur de télévision préféré des français. Ancien « joker », il est devenu une star du journal de 20h, sur la plus grande chaîne nationale, depuis sa couverture des attentats du 11 septembre 2001. Chaque soir, son journal de 20h fait des audiences excellentes. Cela attise bien évidemment les jalousies, même au sein de sa chaîne. De plus, sa soif de pouvoir est sans limite. Le président de la chaîne le voit alors comme un potentiel rival.

Jean-Paul Belmondo demeure depuis cinquante ans, un des acteurs français préférés du public. Depuis ses débuts éclatants dans "À bout de souffle" (1959) de Jean-Luc Godard révélant une personnalité atypique, jusqu’à ses grands succès populaires des années 70 et 80, Belmondo n’a cessé de se remettre en question. Dévorant la vie à pleins poumons grâce à un dynamisme hors-pair, cet homme lucide et avisé a géré sa carrière de producteur-comédien par des choix qui lui permirent d’alterner harmonieusement les genres, passant aisément de l’univers de Godard à celui de Verneuil, de Truffaut à Jean Becker, de Resnais à Lautner, de Malle à Philippe de Broca... Réfractaire à l’autosatisfaction et aux honneurs de pacotille, Jean-Paul Belmondo n’a jamais accepté qu’un film analyse sa carrière, visite sa famille et cerne la personnalité réelle de l’homme. "Belmondo, itinéraire...", s’annonce comme un docu-événement car pour la première fois, Jean-Paul Belmondo cautionne et s’implique dans l’écriture et la réalisation du "film de sa carrière". Il s’agit d’un long-métrage de 90 minutes non chronologique, dans lequel il accepte de nous livrer des scènes de sa vie quotidienne, preuve éclatante d’un homme vivant.

Jean-Pierre Melville, born Jean-Pierre Grumbach, was of Alsatian Jewish descent. Having to flee Nazi-occupied France during World War II, he joined the French Resistance and took the pseudonym Melville, in tribute to American novelist Herman Melville. He subsequently retained his war name as his stage name, once the war was over. This personal experience of the war and in particular of resistance fighting impacted Melville's formative year and has an influence which can be seen in his films.

La Contessa Elena Torlato-Favrini (her last name taken from The Barefoot Contessa) is a wealthy Italian industrialist living in a sprawling estate near Lake Geneva, Switzerland. She is attended by Jules the Gardener, his wife Yvonne, their daughter Cécile, the chauffeur Laurent, and the mysterious Della Larue (or "Della Street," a reference to Erle Stanley Gardner's Perry Mason stories). At the film's opening, Elena goes for a drive by herself and encounters Roger Lennox (his last name taken from The Long Goodbye), an apparent drifter. Elena's trajectory is brought to an abrupt halt as she stops to help Roger, who has evidently been forced off the road by a truck and is severely incapacitated. As Elena reaches out to take Roger's hand (the "miracle of empty hands"), their relationship begins.
