EARLY LIFE

Delon was born in Sceaux , Seine (now Hauts-de-Seine ), Île-de-France , a suburb of Paris. His parents, Édith (née Arnold) and Fabien Delon, divorced when Delon was four. Both remarried, and Delon has a half-sister and two half-brothers. His paternal grandmother was Corsican , from Prunelli-di-Fiumorbo .

When his parents divorced, Delon was sent to live with foster parents. When they died, his parents shared him but the arrangement proved unsatisfactory. He attended a Roman Catholic
Roman Catholic
boarding school, the first of several schools from which he was expelled because of unruly behavior. Teachers once tried to persuade him to enter the priesthood because of his aptitude in religious studies.

At 14, Delon left school, and worked for a brief time at his stepfather's butcher shop. He enlisted in the French Navy
French Navy
three years later, and in 1953-54 he served as a _fusilier marin_ in the First Indochina War . Delon has said that out of his four years of military service he spent 11 months in prison for being "undisciplined".

CAREER

In 1956, after being dishonorably discharged from the military, he returned to France. He had little money, and got by on whatever employment he could find. He spent time working as a waiter, a porter, a secretary and a sales assistant. During this time he became friends with the actress Brigitte Auber , and joined her on a trip to the Cannes Film Festival , where his film career would begin.

EARLY FILM ROLES

At Cannes
Cannes
, Delon was seen by a talent scout for David O. Selznick . After a screen test Selznick offered him a contract, provided he learn English. Delon returned to Paris to study the language, but when he met French director Yves Allégret , he was convinced that he should stay in France to begin his career. Selznick allowed Delon to cancel his contract, and Allégret gave him his debut in the film with Edwige Feuillère , _Quand la femme s\'en mêle _ (1957) (_Send a Woman When the Devil Fails_).

Marc Allegret cast him in _ Be Beautiful But Shut Up _ (1958), which also featured a young Jean Paul Belmondo . He was then given his first lead, supporting Romy Schneider in a period romance, _Christine _ (1958), based on a novel by Arthur Schnitzler . He and Schneider began a highly publicised romance in real life. The film was the seventeenth most popular movie at the French box office that year.

FRENCH STARDOM

Delon was given the lead in a comedy, _ Women are Weak _ (1959). This was a big hit in France and was the first of Delon's films to be seen in America. Delon made some personal appearances in New York to promote the movie. He was a known associate of Vojislav Stanimirovic and frequented Mr Stan's establishments owned and operated in Manhattan

Also very popular was _ Way of Youth _ (1959) with Bourvil and Lino Ventura .

INTERNATIONAL FAME

Delon then made two films which ensured his international reputation. In 1960, he appeared in René Clément
René Clément
's _ Purple Noon _, which was based on the Patricia Highsmith novel _ The Talented Mr. Ripley _. Delon played protagonist Tom Ripley to critical acclaim; Highsmith herself was also a fan of his portrayal. The movie was a hit in France and on the art house circuit in English speaking countries.

He then played the title role in Luchino Visconti 's _Rocco and His Brothers _ (1960). Critic Bosley Crowther of the _ New York Times
New York Times
_ said Delon's work was "touchingly pliant and expressive." John Beaufort in the _ Christian Science Monitor
Christian Science Monitor
_ said: "Rocco's heartbroken steadfastness furnishes the film with the foremost of its ironic tragedies ... ts believability rests finally on Mr. Delon's compelling performance."

Delon made his stage debut in 1961 in the John Ford play _Tis Pity She\'s a Whore _ alongside Romy Schneider in Paris. Visconti directed the production which broke box office records. He was reunited with Rene Clement in the Italian comedy film about fascism, _The Joy of Living _ (1961). It was a minor success. More popular was an all-star anthology film _ Famous Love Affairs _ (1961); Delon's segment cast him as Albert III, Duke of Bavaria , opposite Brigitte Bardot .

Around this time Delon was mentioned as a possibility for the lead in _Lawrence of Arabia _. Peter O'Toole was cast instead, but then Delon was signed by Seven Arts to a four-picture deal, including a big budget international movie of the Marco Polo
Marco Polo
story and _The King of Paris_, about Alexander Dumas .

Neither project came to fruition. Instead he was cast by Michelangelo Antonioni opposite Monica Vitti in _L\'Eclisse _ (1962), a major critical success, even though audiences were small. More popular was another all-star anthology film, _ The Devil and the Ten Commandments _ (1963); Delon's segment cast him with Danielle Darrieux .

MGM

Producer Jacques Bar was making a heist film with Jean Gabin with backing from MGM
MGM
, _Any Number Can Win _ (1963). Gabin's co star was meant to be Jean-Louis Trintignant
Jean-Louis Trintignant
until Delon lobbied Bar for the role. He took the film's distribution rights in certain countries instead of a straight salary. Because this had never been done before in France, this was known as "Delon's method." The gamble paid off well, with Jean Gabin later claiming that Delon earned ten times more money than he did as a result. However, in 1965 Delon claimed "no one else has tried it since and made money." Nonetheless, the experience gave Delon a taste for producing. He also signed a five-picture deal with MGM, of which _Any Number Can Win_ was the first.

His reputation was further enhanced when he worked with Visconti again for _Il Gattopardo _ (_The Leopard_) with Burt Lancaster and Claudia Cardinale . This was the seventh biggest hit of the year in France; _Any Number Can Win_ was the sixth. _The Leopard_ was also widely screened in the US through 20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox
.

Delon was now one of the most popular stars in France. He starred in a swashbuckler, _The Black Tulip _ (1964), from a novel by Alexandre Dumas , another hit.

_Joy House _ (1964), which reunited him with Rene Clement and co-starred Jane Fonda , was filmed in French and English versions. The latter was distributed by MGM, but it was not a success.

In 1964, the Cinémathèque Française held a showcase of Delon's films and Delon started a production company, Delbeau Production, with Georges Beaume. They produced a film called _The Unvanquished _ (_ L’insoumis _) (1964), where Delon played an OAS assassin. It had to be re-edited because of legal issues. Despite being distributed by MGM, audiences were small.

HOLLYWOOD STAR

Typecast as a "Latin Lover", Delon spent the next few years focused on making it in Hollywood. He was quoted in 1965 as saying:

I don't know whether I'll succeed or not. If I were to concentrate on working entirely here and flop it would be a disaster for me in Europe. Everything would dissolve and I would have nothing. My dream is to do one picture a year in America and one in Europe... the top, the last step. It's a kind of consecration... If you want to be an international star you must establish yourself in American pictures, because only they will get adequate world wide distribution. It takes only a year for an American star to become known throughout the world. But European actors consider it a big break to get their pictures shown in New York. Because of my accent I would not attempt to play Americans. I am working on removing the distinctly French inflections from my speech so that I can play all continental nationalities.

He started with a small part in an all-star anthology for MGM
MGM
, _The Yellow Rolls Royce _ (1965), opposite Shirley Maclaine
Shirley Maclaine
. It was popular although Delon had little to do.

He had his first English-language lead in _Once a Thief _, where he co-starred with Ann-Margret . It was based on a novel by Zekial Marko who had written _Any Number Can Win_, but it was not as successful. It was financed by MGM
MGM
who announced Delon would appear in a Western _Ready for the Tiger_ directed by Sam Peckinpah , but the film was never made.

Instead Delon signed a three-picture deal with Columbia, for whom he appeared in the big budget action film _ Lost Command _ (1966), playing a member of the French Foreign Legion, alongside Anthony Quinn and Claudia Cardinal. The studio also announced that he would appear in the biopic _Cervantes_, but this was never made.

Universal Studios used Delon in a Western, opposite Dean Martin, _ Texas Across the River _. Ray Stark wanted to use him in _The Night of the Iguana _ and _ This Property is Condemned _. He did not appear in either film but was in that producer's _ Is Paris Burning? _, directed by Rene Clement, playing Jacques Chaban-Delmas . This was a massive hit in France but performed disappointingly at the US box office - as did all of Delon's Hollywood financed films.

Delon remained a massive star in France. Along with Steve McQueen
Steve McQueen
and Sean Connery he was one of the biggest stars in Japan. However he could not make headway in America.

RETURN TO FRANCE

After six Hollywood movies Delon returned to France to make _The Last Adventure _ opposite Lino Ventura . It was one of Delon's most popular films of the 1960s but was not popular in America.

He was meant to reteam with Visconti in _The Stranger_ but did not end up playing it. Instead he appeared on stage in Paris, _Les Yeux Creves_ and made _ Le Samourai _ with Jean-Pierre Melville , which became another classic.

He played an amnesiac in _ Diabolically Yours _ (1968) for Julien Duvivier and had a role in another all-star anthology, _Spirits of the Dead _ (1968); his segment was directed by Louis Malle and co-starred Brigitte Bardot.

He had another attempt at English-language cinema with _Girl on a Motorcycle _ (1968) with Marianne Faithfull for director Jack Cardiff . It was a surprise hit in Britain.

Far more popular at the French box office was _Farewell Friend_ (_Adieu l\'ami _), where Delon and Charles Bronson played former legionnaires who get involved in a heist. The film helped turn Charles Bronson into a genuine star in Europe.

MARKOVIC AFFAIR AND GANGSTER MOVIES

While making the thriller _The Swimming Pool _ (1969) with Romy Schneider, Delon's friend and bodyguard Stefan Markovic was found murdered in a rubbish dumpster on the outskirts of Paris. The subsequent police investigation revealed allegations of sex parties involving celebrities such as Delon and members of government including future French president Georges Pompidou whose wife was allegedly the focus of a series of compromising photos at one such party. Corsican crime boss François Marcantoni also became embroiled in the scandal after a note left by Markovic stated his belief that if anything happened to him it would be because of Delon and Marcantoni. The affair gained notoriety throughout France and in the French press as the Markovic Affair . In a 1969 BBC interview Delon was questioned about his alleged involvement in the death of Markovic, rumours of his involvement in sex parties, and Delon's own sexual tastes.

Reporter: People, once more, don't say it straight to your face but they suggest very very strongly that you have homosexual tastes ? Delon: So what's wrong if I had ? Or I did ? Would I be guilty of something ? If I like it I'll do it. We have a great actor in France named Michel Simon and Michel Simon said once, "If you like your goat, make love with your goat." But the only matter is to love.

Delon then starred in a series of gangster films. First was _Jeff _ (1969), for his own production company, Adel. _The Sicilian Clan _ (1969) teamed him with Lino Venura and Jean Gabin, and was a blockbuster. Even more popular was _Borsalino _ (1970), which Delon produced and co-starred opposite Jean Paul Belmondo . Neither of these broke through in the US the way Delon hoped. Neither did _The Red Circle _, despite Delon appearing with Yves Montand .

For a change of pace he produced a romantic drama, _ The Love Mates _ (1971), which was not a success. Neither was a comedy _Easy, Down There! _ (1971).

MORE INTERNATIONAL FILMS

In the early 1970s Delon made another attempt at the English speaking market. _ The Assassination of Trotsky _ (1972) for Joseph Losey was poorly received but _ Red Sun _ (1972), with Charles Bronson and Toshiro Mifune , did well.

In France he appeared opposite Simone Signoret in _The Widow Couderc _ (1971). He made his third film with Melville, _ Un flic _ (1972).

He produced and starred in a romantic drama, _Indian Summer _ (1972), then made some thrillers: _Shock Treatment _ (1973), and _Tony Arzenta _ (1973).

In 1973, he recorded with Dalida "Paroles, paroles", a popular French-language version of the Italian song " Parole parole ".

He tried again for Hollywood stardom with _Scorpio _ (1973), with Burt Lancaster for director Michael Winner. It was only a minor hit.

In France he made _ The Burned Barns _ (1973) and _Creezy _ (1974). He produced _Two Men in Town _ (1974) which re-teamed him with Jean Gabin, and _Borsalino "> Delon with his daughter Anouchka at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival .

Then it was back to crime for a series of thrillers which he produced as well as starred in: _ Man in a Hurry _ (1976), _Death of a Corrupt Man _ (1977), _ Le Gang _ (1978), _ Attention, The Kids Are Watching _ (1978).

In 1979 Delon stated only a quarter of his business activities involve films:

I have a helicopter business, build furniture, promote prize fights, and race horses... I star in two or three pictures a year in France. They make tremendous profits around the world. My pictures are the most popular in Russia. I am a superstar in Europe. I would like to be a star in America. In order to do so I would have to live and work in Hollywood. I can't do that. My Adel productions makes at least one film a year. I do everything from A to Z. I find a story, hire writers, choose a director, collect a cast, and then put it all together. I even handle the finances, distribution, and publicity. I refuse to accept the director who thinks himself a genius and tries to put his stamp on my films. It is my stamp that counts... I don't mean to sound egotistical. The simple truth is that I am an enormous star all over the world. I like that because it enables me to live well.

In 1979 he made a final attempt at Hollywood stardom, signing with agent Sue Mengers and starring in _The Concorde ... Airport \'79 _ (1979). The film was not a big success.

Delon returned to French films which he produced: _The Medic _ (1979) and _ Three Men to Kill _ (1980).

1980S AND 1990S

_ Teheran 43 _ (1981) was a change of pace. Then it was back to crime: _For a Cop\'s Hide _ (1981), _ Le choc _ (1982), _ Le Battant _ (1983) (which Delon directed}.

He was awarded the Best Actor César Award for his role in Bertrand Blier 's _ Notre histoire _ (1984), and portrayed the aristocratic dandy Baron de Charlus in a film adaptation of Marcel Proust 's novel _Swann in Love _ in the same year.

The thrillers resumed: _ Parole de flic _ (1986), _The Passage (1986 film) _, _ Let Sleeping Cops Lie _ (1988), and _Dancing Machine (film) _ (1990).

One notable film during this time was Jean-Luc Godard 's _Nouvelle Vague _ in 1990, in which Delon played twins.

Delon's last major role was in Patrice Leconte 's _Une chance sur deux _ in 1998, another box office disappointment .

Delon announced his decision to give up acting in 1997, although he still occasionally accepts roles.

2000S

In 2001, Delon starred in French TV cop drama Fabio Montale. He played an aging cop dressed in stylish clothes, a "signature Delon" role audiences were familiar with. The show was a big hit.

In 2003, Delon tried to recreate the success of Fabio Montale and produced and starred in another French TV cop drama Frank Riva. The show did well but was not as successful as Fabio Montale.

BUSINESS CAREER

In the 1970s Delon expanded his interests. He bought trotters and promoted fights.

Since the formation of a perfume label in his name, Delon has had a variety of products sold under his name including wristwatches, clothing, eyewear, stationery and cigarettes.

Delon's sunglasses brand became particularly popular in Hong Kong after actor Chow Yun-fat wore them in the 1986 crime film _A Better Tomorrow _ (as well as two sequels). Delon reportedly wrote a letter thanking Chow for helping the sunglasses sell out in the region. The film's director John Woo has acknowledged Delon as one of his idols and wrote a short essay on _ Le Samourai _ as well as _Le Cercle Rouge _ for the Criterion Collection DVD releases.

In 2009 and 2015, Christian Dior
Christian Dior
used images of the young Alain Delon and excerpts of his 1960s films The Swimming Pool and The Last Adventure respectively in the Eau Sauvage cologne advertising campaigns.

MARKOVIC AFFAIR

Main article: Markovic affair

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

Alain Delon
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
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 Mr Stan 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.
