Lebanese lookers Yasmine Al Massri, Darine Hamze, and Nadine Nassib Njeim are living proof that their homeland must be putting something in its water to produce sultry starlets. How else can one explain the deluge of luscious ladies hailing from Lebanon? Of course, we must add the late Delphine Seyrig to this list. During the early 1970s, the ravishing redhead was the hottest thing to come out of Beirut since red pistachios. After moving to New York (to study at the Actors Studio) and relocating in France, the ingénue worked with such luminaries of French New Wave Cinema as François Truffaut and Luis Buñuel. No doubt their directorial sense rubbed off on Delphine since she directed the women’s lib flick Look Beautiful and Keep Your Mouth Shut (1977) with candid actresses Shirley MacLaine, Maria Schneider, and Jane Fonda. Yet Mr. Skin was more impressed with Ms. Seyrig’s input in front of the camera. Before lending her sexy presence to the foreign drama Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975), Delphine flashed her flesh in the American movie The Black Windmill (1974). Audience members from all over the world will best recognize the skintastic starlet for her naked turn in Fred Zinnemann’s award-winning film The Day of the Jackal (1973). As Colette de Montpellier, Mademoiselle Seyrig put the thrills into the political thriller when she revealed her killer curves! Although movie goers filled theater seats to see Edward Fox, they filled their trousers when Delphine bared her breasts. Merci mon cher!
