Remembered for this pre-match speech in 1977

"Look what these b*****ds have done to Wales. They've taken our coal, our water, our steel. They buy our homes and live in them for a fortnight every year. What have they given us? Absolutely nothing. We've been exploited, raped, controlled and punished by the English — and that's who you are playing this afternoon."

Steve Clarke could try the same speech against Armenia

"Look what these b*****ds have done to the world. They've given us Cher and System of a down and er... ach, just try and score a goal or two lads, eh"

Actor and racing driver Jean-LouisTrintignant joins the Great Silence at 91.

Three Colours Red part of the trilogy is one of my favourite films plus what I believe is a darker version of Yojimbo/Fistful of Dollars directed by Sergio Corbucci called The Great Silence with Klaus Kinski as the villain is another Jean-Louis Trintignant film must see.

I'd throw in Costa Gavras' Z for political conspiracy thriller afficionados, where JLT plays the closest thing the film has to a protagonist.

I've not seen that one.

Reading the wiki page the story is quite dark.

I'll add it to my list of films to see.

Week 25 update

One death this week, actor Jean-Louis Trintignant: Jean-Louis Trintignant, star of A Man and a Woman and Amour, dies aged 91 | Film | The Guardian

Quote

Jean-Louis Trintignant, the French actor closely associated with the European new waves of the 1960s and 70s, has died aged 91. His wife, Mariane Hoepfner Trintignant, announced the news to AFP.

Born in 1930, Trintignant’s childhood was overshadowed by the second world war, but he picked up a passion for race-car driving from two uncles – one of whom was killed on the track in 1933. Trintignant made his name as an actor with a role in Roger Vadim’s Brigitte Bardot vehicle And God Created Woman in 1956, but was then sent to Algeria as a conscript during the war of independence.

On his return to France Trintignant channelled his love for racing into the lead role of Claude Lelouch’s 1966 international hit A Man and a Woman, playing a widower who falls in love with Anouk Aimée. Renowned for its theme music (by Francis Lai), A Man and a Woman was a breakthrough success for French cinema in the US. Trintignant and Aimée would appear in two follow-ups: A Man and a Woman: 20 Years Later (1986) and The Best Years of a Life (2019).

I had a look and, somewhat surprisingly, there's nothing in his filmography I've seen.

Trintignant died at 91 so he's worth 34 Base Points for @Savage Henry and @The_Craig with @Melanius Mullarkay getting a Captain bonus for 68 points.
