I am very happy to announce, that
Gérard Chambre send me back my creation - which he has dedicated to the
fans of Juliette Benzoni. Gérard has played in three of Juliette
Benzoni's book series, in Marianne : alias Jason Beaufort - Catherine,
il suffit d'un amour : alias Jean Poton de Xaintrailles and in Le
Gerfaut : alias Admiral John Paul Jones. Thank you very much dear Gérard
for this newest contribution to my treasure box and also for three never
seen photos in "Catherine";-) I shall upload them one by one. The first
one can be seen above!!
with the one and only Claudine
Even though I seem to repeat myself, who would ever
have believed, that I would one day meet Claudine Ancelot, the
beautiful actress who played our heroine "Catherine"? With absolute
great pleasure,I invite you to read my
report of the meeting, together with my dear friend Frédérique from
France. I am honest, even though a whole month has gone by, I am still
very happy to think back of the that incrediable moment. At the same
time, Claudine has done me the honor, to answer to my "12 quesition de
Mistral" I would like to say again thank you so much, my dear Claudine,
not only for me, but in the name of all our visitors.

let me share my newest wonderful
pleasure! I am talking about the
adorable SONG CATHERINE
which was recorded in 1965 by
French Singer "Bernard
Stéphane" I was able to bid for the record
on BAY, thanks to a hint by
Claire from France - who
informed Frédérique about it !!!
And since we share
our beautiful "Mistral & JouJou"
connection :-) she sweetly said:
that's for you ma chère, you are
the Catherine webmistress!!
Does one need more proof for
knowing that there still exist
friendship in this world? I do
not want to get sentimental
I invite everyone to come and
listen to the song of
the girl with the golden hair"
Laurent le Doyen
With great joy I have added my personal autograph in
my treasure box. During our beautiful and unforgettable fan meeting in
May, he did me the honor and signed me his photo, which I have added
here. I want to thank Laurent again for being a star, who enjoys
fans. He has
to answer my
and I am
sure it is
going to be
Merci beaucoup in advance dear Laurent.
While I had been attending the launching of the first "fanclub"
of Laurent le Doyen in Paris, 9.5.2010 - Frédérique and I went to see
the brand new play of Corinne Touzet
unforgettable afternoon - a marvelous
play with fantastic actors. Lot's of laughter and an audience never
wanting to end with applauding at the end! I would like to thank
Touzet, for signing my selfmade card and for taking the time to pose for
a photo with me. The "waiting-line" was incrediable long, for fans to get their
dedication, even more so do I appreciate this special moment with the
star of "Marianne" and of "Catherine" (Princess Zobeïda).
thank you very much dear Corinne
I am very happy to announce that my very good friend
and I, were able to spend another unforgettable day at Saint-Mandé.
My favourite author, whom I have the permission to call by her first
name - has done me the expectional honor to present me the
very first book cover of "Catherine"! At the same time, writing a new
dedication in a 1968 edition of Catherine - which is at the same time
her preferred book cover of "Catherine de Montsalvy"
Just like in October last year, I have written again a full account of
this amazing meeting with the one and only Juliette Benzoni.
a very happy webmistress
With great delight I can present you
Christmas Wishes. I am very touched by his dedication and do not know how to express
for once - other to say
"Je vous en remercie"
Not enough that the very charming Pierre Deny answered my "12 Questions"
he also did me the great pleasure, and sent me his autograph personally
and also some lovely greeting to you, our visitors. I want to thank
Pierre Deny, our Count of Dunois, for giving us the joy and knowledge
that nothing is impossible, if we stay true to our dreams.
Again, merci beaucoup Pierre
Meeting with Juliette Benzoni
I am sure you can imagine how exited we
of this awesome moment, when two
webmistresses met for the first time,
our beloved author Juliette Benzoni!
A moment like this is something which
usually only happens to other people or in a dream...
please enjoy my
report of Frédérique and
mine adventure at Saint-Mandé... and yes... to be continued...
Not enough to have had the pleasure to interview one of the leading
actors of the TV-serie "Catherine,
Il suffit d'un amour in September - only weeks later, a very friendly
Pierre DENY, who played Count of Dunois in the serie - honored us with
Like our other interviews, it was fantastic to learn about the shooting
way back in 1986. But I am sure everyone agrees, Pierre DENY's
recounting, how they had "swindled" to "Marion Sarraut, the director,
of their ability to be able to ride a horse, was hilarious ;-)
Thank you very much Pierre DENY
(Arnaud de Montsalvy)
I admit, when I created the "Treasure box site" after we were so lucky to bid for Claudine Ancelot's Autograph on
12 November 2008 - I never imagined for one moment, that I would one day
be able to show some real-time Autograph's sent to us, by our beloved
stars of Catherine, Il suffit d'un amour! Also to have the
opportunity to bring some exclusive interviews.
NO... not even I, a very positive thinking person thought this possible! But life is full of surprises !!
Now let us all take pleasure in our newest accomplishment! THE
interview with the one and only
Pierre-Marie Escourrou alias Arnaud de Montsalvy :-) I like
to say merci beaucoup again to him, for his kindness and
the humor he showed towards me and on top of all this - to send the
interview exactly on 10.09.2009, we celebrated our first
Hmm... I begin to think I actually do have a fairy godmother... I wonder
what she will offer me in the future?
Thank you very much Pierre-Marie
