Danielle Darrieux!

French film star Danielle Darrieux bid us adieu this week, after hitting the century mark back in May! Darrieux’s film credits stretch from 1931’s Le bal to 2010’s C’est toi c’est tout, an amazing eighty years on screen! In between, she appeared in primarily French language fare, including Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Napoleon, 8 Women and Scene of the Crime (receiving Cesar nominations for both), Billy Wilder’s directing debut Mauvaise Graine, and no fewer than four movies with Paris in the title, including her English language debut A Rage in Paris. She popped up in a few other Hollywood pictures, most notably Robert Rossen’s Alexander the Great and Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s 5 Fingers, which garnered Best Director and Best Screenplay Oscar noms. Bonsoir, Danielle!

And Kristen G. picks up her second death in three days, in an effort to salvage a fairly down year for her overall. These ten points still leave her just shy of triple digits on the year, but do jump her four spots in the crowded middle of the standings. Well done!

Replacement pick due by next Thursday!
