A French model, Actress… but not only (1938-2017).
When a Heart Murmur…
She had a troubled childhood and wrote her memoirs published in 2008 “mon père” (my father) related to a “traumatic” story with her “father”.
A nice Filmography career, since 1960 until 1989 and about 50 movies.
She is not a real Blonde. She preferred going Blonde! And she did well! 🙂
An exclusive Actress acting various roles mainly Comedy, many directed by the Talented Georges Lautner, Gilles Grangier, Michel Audiard, … That particular band of buddies did welcome and considered Mireille Darc as another Mate of the band, in a world mostly ruled by Nice guys though :), Indeed, they did not see her as just another “blond actress” with a perfect body… However in some movies, she had to play nude scenes, and for sure everyone on set was a bit … “confused” 😉
Yes, Mireille Darc is about A Beauty … When Appeal takes inner and outer Beauty…
Did you know?
She starred in “The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe”. She wore an awesome demure high-necked black-velvet dress designed by her friend Guy Laroche, as we can see on picture below, she turned around and showed that the dress is backless, displaying discreet buttock cleavage! Pierre Richard was not informed of the filming sequence details. He had to open a door and joined Christine in her apartment… and?
Oh surprise! No comment… except: “wooffoooff” lol
A clip of the famous sequence here : (in French version)
Through 1980s, her career was interrupted by open-heart surgery following a car accident, in which she was seriously injured, and her separation from Alain Delon after fifteen years together. She quit her film career, but returned to television in the 1990s. … her Heart.
A fantastic comeback bringing together Mireille and Alain:), performing at Theater the Fabulous “The Bridges of Madison County” on 2007.
The Documentaries, another great talent, she directed no less than 13 TV documentaries.
In 1992, she directed her first TV documentary about “la deuxième vie” (a new life began), based on organ donation and transplantation.
Then, in 1994, “brève rencontre” (brief meeting) telling background of prostitutes lifestyle.
Two years later, another documentary about cancer ; “le doute et l’espérance” (from Doubt to Hope). Later, about women released from prison “de l’ombre à la lumière” (Out of the Shadows at Last).
In 2005, an extraordinary doc about women acting in porno movies. “une vie classée X” ( a way out of porn Industry)
In 2015, about “Elles sont des dizaines de milliers sans abri!” … tens of thousands women left homeless!
She said : “J’ai fréquenté la mort, je l’ai vue. Je connais presque son odeur” meaning “Death? death is familiar to me, never been so close to, I know what it feels like”.
All her documentaries go straight to the heart. Yeaah to the heart… and left you “breathless”, such she was Talented filming people, real life stories in a pure state, with a straight talking too.
Many in the Media should be learning from her Experience, so that we will probably be pleased to watch more documentaries on French TV… well in my opinion… sure, another French and Ethics Consumer Reporter like “Elise Lucet” is really Performing.
Last:) Mireille was not only a Beauty, or great sense of humour but also a clever woman, humble, compassionate and full of loving kindness. It is no wonder that we are Loving and admiring her.
Documentaries made her enhance Life and enables her to grow Humanly.
Decorations: Officer of the Legion of Honour and Commander of the National Order of Merit.

That’s all for now!:)
