Bright, crisp, light bodied, aged twenty-seven years.
This shot of French actress Lyne Chardonnet comes from the cover of an August 1970 issue of the Belgian magazine Ciné-Revue, a publication that's a gold mine for vintage celebrity imagery. We still have a few issues we picked up in Paris, and hopefully we'll scan those at some point. Chardonnet appeared in more than forty films during a fifteen year career, including Le tatoué and Dracula père et fils, aka Dracula and Son. She's another unfortunate actress that died early, but not by misadventure—liver cancer got her when she was only thirty-seven.
