Isabelle Pasco

  1. Charlotte Lewis, Pirates, 1985.    When neither Isabelle Adjani or Nastassja Kinsksi excited US backers, director Roman Polanski called in French casting icon  Dominque Besnehard. Pasco’s tests were fine, but also caused  scant tumesence in  Hollywood suits. At Polanski’s kind suggestionto realisateur Robin Davis, she won Hors-la-loi (Outlaws!).  
  2. Emmanuelle Béart, Manon des sources, France-Italy-Switzerland, 1985.    Worthy of a great Western, the Marcel Pagnol classic had last been filmed in 1952 with his wife, Jacqueline, as the object of the lovelorn Ugolin’s obsession. In 1985, Ugolin was played by Beart’s lover, Daniel Auteuil.   A fortuitous accident which  producteur-realisateur Claude Berri took every advantage of.
