Happy 105th Birthday, Jean Gabin!

Today is Sunday, May 17th, 2009.

Happy 105th Birthday to Jean Gabin.

Jean Gabin, of course, passed on in 1976, at the age of 72, but he will continually be remembered, because he is THE WORLD'S COOLEST MOVIE STAR. Audiences who lined up last week at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, to see Gabin in two films directed by Julien Duvivier, 1935's "La Bandera" and 1936's "La Belle equipe," already know that.

World's Coolest Movie Star: The Complete 95 Films (and Legend) of Jean Gabin, Volumes One and Two, the first English-language book about Gabin, is available at and Barnes and, or ask a bookseller near you.
