Françoise Dorléac 26th June 1967 – A8 Motorway – Exit Villeneuve-Loubet (Alpes-Maritimes/ France) Renault 10 Françoise Dorléac leaves Saint-Tropez heading east towards Nice Airport to catch a plane bound for London where she’s due to attend the première of the film ‘Les Demoiselles de Rochefort’. She’s running late and its raining heavily as she speeds along the coast in a Renault 10 rental car. As it approaches a very tight bend, Francoise suddenly loses control, throwing the car into a fatal spin. It leaves the road and rolls several times before catching fire. The body of Françoise Dorléac will be later identified thanks to some personal papers that survived the fire. Let’s celebrate the dead!
