Not much of a title, but this set includes five of the suave Gallic screen star's most sought after films. The Widow Couderc (Pierre Granier-Deferre, 1974, 92 mins.) is a fun French thriller with Simone Signoret as the provincial widow whose love affairs lead her to fall in love with Delon, playing an escaped murderer. Then in Diabolically Yours (Julien Duvivier, 1968, 90 mins.), poor Alain has lost his memory. But Senta Berger, who claims to be his wife, says everything will be fine once he is out of the hospital and back at his estate. An intricate thriller involving unnatural accidents, murder plots and a lusting Chinese servant. The Swimming Pool (La Piscine, Jacques Deray, 1969, 85 mins.) is a story of intrigue an d lust set in the South of France on the Riviera. Delon tangles with Austrian beauty Romy Schneider in a steamy tale of jealousy and sexual tension. The life of gypsies in France serves as the backdrop for The Gypsy (Le Gitan, Jose Giovanni, 1975, 102 mins.), a drama about a Robin Hood-like gypsy (Delon) who stays one step ahead of the law and the woman (Annie Girardot) who helps him. Our Story (Notre Histoire, Bertran d Blier, 1984, 111 mins.) is a surreal comedy that earned Delon a Cesar Award for his role as a drunk who hits rock bottom, meets and beds Nathalie Baye on a train, and clings to her for dear life as soon as they detrain.
