Michèle Morgan is one of the greatest French actresses of the 20th century. The actress won a César, and also has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The actress was at the end of 30 years known for her role in “Le Quai des brumes” of Marcel team was.

Perhaps the most famous moment in that film comes when Jean Gabin says: “T’as d’beaux yeux, tu sais”.

Why Morgan replies: “Embrassez-moi”.

And Gabin kisses her indeed.

That was sultry for 1938, and the film be on the quality at Morgan who most appeal to the imagination: her eyes.

When she, in 1977, her memoirs published, had the title: Avec ces yeux-là (With those eyes).

It seemed like she was stuck in that moment of Le Quai des brumes, writes Le Monde in its in memoriam, but at the same time, showed that time her as “a woman with a strong sexuality, her desires showed”, a “woman debate”.

And it was not limited to that one suksesfilm.
