1. Isabelle Adjani, L’Eté meurtrier (UK/US : One Deadly Summer),  France, 1982.    When Adjani backed out because of the nudity required, her potential successors included two singers (Lio and Jeanne Mas) and dancer Anne Fontaine.  Lio, France’s favourite Portugese singer, regretted refusing –  *because I would have been that Isabelle Adjani.” Once Valerie Kaprisky was signed, Adjani called director Jean Becker. She’d  changed her mind… “You have no right to behave like that, ” fumed casting director Dominique Besnehard. (He later became her agent  – andValerie’s).  No one told Kaprisky  the rotten news – except the media. And she was still tearful about it when telling me all  in Paris in 1984.
