Micheline Presle died at the age of 101, her son-in-law told AFP. She was one of the three favorite stars of the French, with Danielle Darrieux and Michèle Morgan.

“Infinite sadness. France is orphaned by its beloved saint,” said the former president of the Cannes Film Festival Gilles Jacob. Her last appearance in front of the camera dates back to 2018, for the show Fashion Freak Show, directed by Tonie Marshall and Jean Paul Gaultier.
