French actress Michele Morgan has died at the age of 96.
Morgan, who was born in 1920, died in France on December 20, 2016.
Obituaries have been published by the New York Times and Deadline.
Two of Morgan's films are special to me: The Frank Sinatra musical HIGHER AND HIGHER (1943), which was a childhood favorite of mine, and the steamy, strange film noir THE CHASE (1946). She's seen below with Robert Cummings in THE CHASE:
Morgan's films also included JOAN OF PARIS (1942), PASSAGE TO MARSEILLE (1944), and THE FALLEN IDOL (1948).
