Wiki Bio Text
==Françoise Dorléac== (21 March 1942 – 26 June 1967) was a French actress. She was the daughter of screen actor [[Maurice Dorléac]] and [[Renée Simonot]], and the elder sister of [[Catherine Deneuve]].

Her other films include [[Philippe de Broca]]'s movie [[L'Homme de Rio]], [[François Truffaut]]'s [[La Peau douce]], [[Roman Polanski]]'s [[Cul-de-sac]] and [[Val Guest]]'s [[Where the Spies Are]].
===Biography=== ====Slim,==== pale-skinned and brunette, Dorléac appeared in several movies before hitting stardom with [[François Truffaut]]'s melodrama [[La Peau douce]] (1964) and the classic spy spoof [[L'Homme de Rio]] (1964) with [[Jean-Paul Belmondo]]. She also appeared in the comedy films [[Arsène Lupin contre Arsène Lupin]] (1962) opposite [[Jean-Claude Brialy]], and [[Male Hunt]] (1964).
====She appeared==== as the adulterous wife in [[Roman Polanski]]'s black comedy [[Cul-de-sac]], and joined [[Gene Kelly]] and her sister [[Catherine Deneuve]], who was a cinematic star by this time, in the candy-coated [[The Young Girls of Rochefort]] (1967), a colorful homage to the Hollywood musical.

===Death=== ====Dorléac==== was on the brink of international stardom when she died on 26 June 1967 in a motor accident. She lost control of a rented Renault 10 and hit a signpost ten kilometres from Nice at the Villeneuve-Loubet exit of the highway La Provençale. The car flipped over, and burst into flames. She had been en route to Nice airport and was afraid of missing her flight. She was seen struggling to get out of the car, but was unable to open the door. Police later identified her body only from the fragment of a cheque book, a diary and her driver's licence.
