What a beautiful morning, Monday, June 10, at the cemetery of Montmartre. The weather was, like the place, mild and serene.
We wandered through a tombstone architecture, sometimes surprising as the bronze “monumental” Jean Bauchet, very muscular – hey! yes, I was acrobatic dancer in my young age – even moving as the glass of Michel Berger and France Gall.
We visited many characters including some well known as Zola, Francis Lopez, Galabru, Annie Fratellini, Francois Truffaut, Jeanne Moreau, Hector Berlioz, the Goncourt.
But do you know Louise Weber? It was “La goulue”, creator of the French Cancan! Maurice Sinet, Hervet Baudry? Cartoonists, Margaret Kelly? It was Miss “BlueBell”, Barouth? He wrote the song of Lelouche’s film “A Man and a Woman”, Najinsky? Russian dancer and his tumultuous life,
Dr. Pitchal? Psychiatrist who sleeps not far from his patient Dalida.
“Love and humor” title poster. It was a visit with characters who surprised us, fascinated us, made us smile and even laughed.
Not always sad to go to the cemetery!
