    Other french actors who made westerns: Roger Hanin, Jean-Louis Trintignant (Il Grande Silenzio), Pierre Perret (Le Juge, where he played Judge Roy Bean), and Johnny Halliday (Le Spécialiste).

  3. Changing the subject, The Economist, May 9th issue, page 39, has a discussion on Saint Pierre & Miquelon.
