RIP : Michèle Morgan


French actress Michèle Morgan died today at the age of 96. Her career started back in the 1930s! She did several costume dramas but her big PEPLUM film was playing the title character in FABIOLA. Released in 1949, it was one of the films which started the Golden Era of the PEPLUM explosion (the other being SAMSON & DELILAH).

"Fabiola" is indeed a first class Peplum. Furthermore Michele's performance as a "good" Patrician lady was outstanding.
