Françoise Paulette Louise Dorléac (21 March 1942 – 26 June 1967)

Both shy and bold. Light, dazzling, but sometimes sad look. Full of contrasts, she was like a twinkling star.  — Patrick Modiano

The problem, for many young actresses, is to make a successful transition from young girl to woman, to switch from juvenile parts to adult ones. Françoise Dorléac, who will always be Framboise Dorléac for me, won’t have those difficulties, for she is a precocious, premature woman, with a constructed face and body, constructed firmly, to last. She is the only young actress who might very conceivably have greater and greater appeal. — François Truffaut
