We're more than a month late on this one:

I just saw Madame Bovary (1949) and did some reading about it online; turns out that Louis Jourdan just died, on Feb. 14, 2015, at the age of 93, at his home in Beverly Hills. He is one of those actors whom I never knew was still alive until I heard he was dead (hey, that sounds like a Yogi Berra line?)

To quote wikipedia, Jourdan "was known for his suave roles in several Hollywood films, including The Paradine Case (1947), Letter from an Unknown Woman (1948), Gigi (1958), The Best of Everything (1959), The V.I.P.s (1963) and Octopussy (1983)."

My memory of him is for Letter from an Unknown Woman, a film that I like very much.

I did not like Madame Bovary, primarily because of what an awful actress Jennifer Jones is. Jourdan was good in the movie.

Rest in Peace

My memory of him is for the Columbo episode where he plays a murdering chef who gets rid of a colleague by injecting poison into a wine bottle through the cork. I always thought that was a clever homicide.

That's what you get, Drink, for getting out of bed this morning.

I'll keep that in mind, in case I ever need to carry out the perfect murder
