Dominique Zardi 1930—2009
A familiar face of French cinema, notably for his numerous appearances in films by Claude Chabrol, actor, environmentalist and, apparently, boxing authority Dominique Zardi passed away on December 14 from cancer at the age of 79. Although he and Henri Attal were clearly over the top as the boisterous gay couple in Chabrol’s Les Biches (1968), the performance is a showcase for Mr. Zardi’s comedic talents. I doubt many Stateside publications will remember him, but there are several online obituaries from Europe available for translation through Google.
