"The eyes of the Inquisitor or the crucified Christ, the broad shoulders, thick dark hair, clearly delineated, as if on an illustration, oval face - whether the prelate, whether the angry angel, prominent cheekbones, a broad forehead, thin mouth, but soft lips and the chin of a stubborn man who is ready to engage in a fight." - Pascal Jardin's description of Alain Delon
