The photograph is by Giancarlo Botti, a famous photographer from the 60s, during the filming of the feature film "les aventuriers" with the two French stars. The scene took place on the French Riviera or in North Africa.

Alain Delon (born 1935) is, along with Gérard Depardieu, the most famous French actor, both in France and internationally. He began his acting career with the film "The Sun for Witness (1960)". He became famous for his portrayal of the killer Costello in "The Samurai (1967)". He also played roles of special artistic complexity in films by Luchino Visconti (Rocco and His Brothers, 1961, and The Leopard, 1963) and Völker Schlöndorf (Swann's Love, 1983). Very beautiful, one of his media achievements was the beautiful Romy Schneider, the beautiful Sissi in the cinema.

As Lino Ventura (1919 - 1987), he was a professional wrestler before becoming one of the most beloved actors in France after the Second World War. He acted in several classics of French cinema (especially police stories) with the best actors of the time, such as Jean Gabin or Alain Delon: for example, "Touchez pas au Grisbi (1954)", "Army of shadows (1969)" or "Les Misérables (1982)".

The third man in this photograph, Robert Enrico (1931 - 2001) was an important director and scenarist, also an influential director of French cinema. He directed several hits and classics such as "Les aventuriers (1967)" or "Le vieux fusil (1976)", as well as excellent documentaries, for which he won major awards.

We owe this document to Giancarlo Botti, a renowned Italian photographer, born in 1931. He became famous for taking photographs, sometimes daring, always in black and white, of celebrities such as Brigitte Bardot, Salvador Dali, Bob Dylan, Romy Schneider or Alain Delon.

Typically, official press photographs show movie stars acting; I found this image interesting because it shows the film's crew resting between two scenes, Alain Delon has just taken a swim in the sea. We observed the spontaneity and friendship of the three relaxed professionals.
