The 2019 Cannes film festival will celebrate legendary French actor Alain Delon with an honorary Palme d'Or. At the age of 83, Delon continues to attract a generous dose of controversy for his homophobic views, accusations of domestic abuse and longtime friendship with founder of France's far-right party National Front, Jean-Marie Le Pen. But in Cannes the focus will be on his acting exploits in such classics as "Purple Noon" and "The Leopard."

This OneShot is part of a series with the French public audiovisual institute INA from their #Cannes photographic archives. Taken in 1962, the image features Delon at the age of 26 ... alongside another emerging screen legend, from Italy: Sophia Loren!
