GIGI was on recently and I noted then that Jourdan was still alive. Of course he was in the classic SWAMP THING with Adrienne Barbeau.

And to the Academy's shame, neither was nominated for an Oscar.

He starred in one of the all-time great Romantic films: LETTER FROM AN UNKNOWN WOMAN (1948)and turned in a wonderfully knowing performance.

I'd recommend a small TV movie thriller - "Run A Crooked Mile" which also starred Mary Tyler Moore and Wilfred Hyde-White. Good suspense film....
