Jeanne Moreau has over one hundred credits to her name, debuting in Dernier Amour (1948) before going on to play in what would amount to a number of B-movies. That all changed when she was picked up by legendary auteur Louis Malle for his film Ascenseur pour l'echafaud (1958). Many credit Malle with bringing fame to the comely starlet, but the fact is that she had been acting onstage and in film for twenty years prior, as he was quick to point out. Jeanne did appear in mostly European cinema but jumped over to the States for some time, appearing in such flicks as The Victors (1963), The Yellow Rolls-Royce (1964), and The Train (1965)--guess they weren't so creative about movie titles back then. Jeanne may be best remembered as the lead in François Truffaut's French threesome Jules et Jim (1961). Never exactly shy about showing off her beauty, she flashed brief delights in Les Amants (1958). La Notte (1960) is an erotic masterpiece that made her an international star, and she's also a hoot(er) in The Bride Wore Black (1967). But it was her role in The Immortal Story (1968) that first grabbed Skin Central by its collective balls. It offered a tantalizing glance at Jeanne's goodies, although she had them discreetly covered with her hands. It wouldn't be until Je t'aime (1974) that we would finally see what she was trying so desperately to hide. It was worth the wait.
