Tragic Stars : Henri Vidal

French actor Henri Vidal, who appeared in a couple of high profile PEPLUM films such as FABIOLA (below) and ATTILA (above), died at the age of 40 from a heart attack in 1959. Henri was still popular and whose career was still thriving when he unexpectedly died. He was married to Michèle Morgan, also in FABIOLA in the picture below. He died just as the PEPLUM explosion started and one can only wonder what films he would have made in the 1960s.

Good to see recognition of Vidal, a fascinating actor cut down in his prime. I have seen a few of his lately with Brigitte Bardot and Romy Schneider.
As you say its a shame his career did not extend into the '60s.
