A belated acknowledgement of the passing of French actress Edith Scob, whose ethereal eyes and softly sculpted blonde features became a sensation in the artier segments of French noir and art film in the early-to-late 60s, passed away on June 26 at the age of 81. She had been working steadily up until her death, primarily in showy cameos that allowed filmmakers to exploit a look and an acting style that remained intriguing even into old age.

She's best remembered for her role in Georges Franju's EYES WITHOUT A FACE (1960), but she's also prominent at the end of the decade, playing the Virgin Mary in Bunuel's THE MILKY WAY.
FRENCH 6 attendees will see her in two noirs in which she is featured in supporting roles--stay tuned for more information about these films when the full schedule is announced after Labor Day.
