Dear friends of the Catherine, il suffit d’un amour TV-Series.

I am very much delighted to present you the photo (creation) of a very special reunion! It is the meeting of three of the former beloved stars of “Catherine” after more than twenty years!

Claudine Ancelot, who was our beloved Catherine, Pierre-Marie Escourrou, as Arnaud de Montsalvy, our valiant Chevalier and Gérard Chambre, Jean Poton de Xaintrailles as their best friend and godfather of their son Michel. The meeting took place in Paris June 2013 and we had it first hand from Claudine, Pierre-Marie and Gérard that they spent a marvellous and exceptional  dinner together.

Les filles des Grands Chemins (as called by Claudine Ancelot and Juliette Benzoni) cannot express enough their pride and joy, to be responsible for this unique reunion! Ten years ago, both of us created a website – never believing what can happen, when two girls believe in a good cause and stay with their feet on the ground!

I would like to thank my dear friend Gérard Chambre for sending me personally some precious photos of that unique meeting!  At the same time the two passionate webmasters Linda and Frédérique, send a huge embrace to Claudine, Gérard and Pierre-Marie for sharing with us that memorable reunion – posing for a sublime souvenir photo – confirming that the trio truly had a magnificent time during the shooting of Catherine. On one of our meetings with the trio they confirmed that they were deeply touched that their performance in 1986 in Catherine directed by our dear Dame Marion Sarraut has not been forgotten until this day!

On 2009 my dear friend Frédérique had the teasing idea to interview my sister and me! One of her questions was: if you could choose a new highlight for next year for your website, what would that be? My answer?

  • To travel to Paris and meet Juliette Benzoni in person!
    to be able to present an interview, by none other than Claudine Ancelot!
    and yes, there was a third wish, the re-publishing of the English Catherine books - including the last never translated book LA DAME DE MONTSALVY

I like to end with my all-time favourite motto since 2008… but not forgetting to express my sincere thanks to my dear sister Evelyne/LaLuna for her latest creation. Even though she stays in the background of her own choice, she shares our joy with  everything concerning “Catherine, il suffit d’un amour”!
