Happy Birthday, Alain Delon!

November 08, 2017



Today is Alain Delon's birthday! I've planned a few things to celebrate, starting with a brand new tribute video! This one took me WAY longer than any other one I've ever worked on. Normally I knock them out in 1-2 sittings but I've been fiddling with this one for about two months, adding clips and replacing clips here and there until I thought it was perfect. It's VERY fangirly but I think that just makes it more fun to watch. I hope you enjoy it! :)



I also rounded up a list of a bunch of Alain Delon movies currently streaming online in the US. I can't vouch for how long these movies will be available (for instance, the FilmStruck ones have been on the service since July so they may be expiring soon) but if you want to celebrate his birthday tonight, here are some movies you can stream instantly:

Happy birthday, Alain Delon!! I LOVED your tribute video. That was quite lovely. And the link round-up was awesome. I ended up watching Red Sun, because I've always wanted to see it (Westerns and Samurai... sooooo up my alley), and I adore Toshiro Mifune. I didn't actually know Alain Delon was in that one. Or didn't remember it, anyway. So, that gave me a most entertaining evening! I quite enjoyed it. Thank you!
