Belated Birthday Greetings to Alice Arno


Yikes! What a grisly image for a belated birthday note. Guess how old Marie-France Broquet was yesterday....


She was featured in four Jess Franco masterworks all made in the busy year of 1973: AL OTRO LADO DEL ESPEJO, PLAISIR A TROIS, LA COMTESSE PERVERSE and FEMALE VAMPIRE. She proved to be a terrific actress in all four and swung a mean whip in three of them.
Alice also appeared in five other Jess Franco directed titles in the same year!
Have one for Alice this evening...

Thanks to this post I viewed Plaisir a Trois for the first time last night. An amazing film and so far my favorite Alice Arno performance. Thanks for pointing it out!

I'm pleased you caught it and like it. One of my favorite 70s Franco titles. Unfortunately, I've only been able to see it via a poor quality VSOM video dupe which I got in the early 90s! Really needs a good DVD presentation. I especially like the basement chamber of horrors.

I think it's the best of the Arno movies I've seen. For some reason she's my least favorite Franco actress, in terms of those who worked alot with him.

I like her in PLAISIR A TROIS and THE PERVERSE COUNTESS a lot. She's less effective in other roles. She seems to be ideal for villains.
