Morning Man Classic: Jacques Bergerac!

I present to you today the dreamy French actor Jacques Bergerac.

Bergarac, who died in 2014, was married to two Oscar-winning actresses: Ginger Rogers for four years then Dorothy Malone with whom he had two children before they divorced in 1964 after five years of marriage.

Bergerac appeared with Miss Rogers in the 1954 film in Twist of Fate. He then went on to appear as Armand Duval in a television production of Camille for Kraft Television Theatre, opposite Signe Hasso. He played the Comte de Provence in Jean Delannoy’s film, Marie Antoinette Queen of France.

In Strange Intruder (1956), he shared the screen with Edmund Purdom and Ida Lupino and in Les Girls (1957), he played the second male lead. He also appeared in Gigi (1958), Thunder in the Sun (1959), the cult horror film The Hypnotic Eye (1960) and A Global Affair (1964). In 1957, he received the Golden Globe Award for Foreign Newcomer.

He appeared in a few more films and on television including Batman, 77 Sunset Strip, Alfred Hitchcock Presents (3 episodes), The Lucy Show, Get Smart and The Dick Van Dyke Show. His last appearance was on an episode of The Doris Day Show in 1969; after which he left show business and became the head of Revlon’s Paris office and of the Perfumes Balmain company. His younger brother Michel became CEO of Revlon six years later.

He also managed the rugby club Biarritz Olympique from 1980 until 1981.
