Bernard Borderie lived only 53 years, he died young. What a pity he did not lived much longer and made many more immortal films. Like this gorgeous "Rocambole". I grew up with his films, I spent my childhood watching many times: Clash of Steel (1962) Le chevalier de Pardaillan (original title), Hardi Pardaillan! (1964), Seven Guys and a Gal (1967) Sept hommes et une garce (original title) and the films in the "Angélique" series with Michèle Mercier and Robert Hossein. I've also saw Channing Pollock many times, with immense pleasure, in "Judex" (1963), one of my favorite movies ever.
