An Image 08/05/09 & Marilyn Monroe Syndrome

Cathering Deneuve in Belle De Jour & a picture that defined the 60's french sex symbol. She is still making movies 40 some odd years later- watch Von Trier's Dancer In The Dark and the more recent 8 Femmes. She sadly suffered the same fate as Marilyn Monore did- remembered more for her looks than her actual acting abilities. Monroe did a few good movies such as Some Like It Hot and The Seven Year Itch but she didn't have much acting to do in those films she was just being Marilyn- the giggly airhead type. Denueve is the opposite, she DID extend her acting abilities but her looks overshadowed everything she did and what we are left with is this incredible image from Luis Bunuel's film.
