Original articles concerning the launching of the TV-Series


For years one by one I collect all the article's about the books and the filming of the Catherine de Montsalvy TV-Series.
It is a great challenge for me since the TV-Series was not shown on Swiss Television back in 1986 !It is really a pity, since I am known for being the great collector ! Be it an article about Grace Kelly, Farah Diba, Jacqueline Onassis or even the moon landing!
I am very thankful to Frédérique to my dear personal friends
Claudine Ancelot, Gérard Chambre and to our very dear Juliette, knowing where my heart lies and making me a gift of the Catherine articles or material. I am deeply touched and with great joy I share it with all of you...

Of course there excist still more articles from the debut of the Catherine shooting! Unfortunately a fire destroyed a lot of material at Juliette's house a few years ago! But who knows... maybe there are some of you faithful readers out there who would love to share them with my official Catherine de Montsalvy website - the only website besides Frédérique's Blog acknowledged by Juliette Benzoni and her daughter Anne Gallois.

Enjoy my very first original article about the launching of the  Catherine de Montsalvy TV-Series.
This treasure was given to me in person on my first meeting in October 2009 with  Juliette Benzoni. I like to say again merci beaucoup with all my heart for letting me keep this rare article!

Original article of the launching of the TV series CATHERINE, il suffit d'un amour - a precious gift from Frédérique,  thank you very much my dear.


On our first meeting with Claudine in 2011 she was so kind to sign the copy of these article. A few years later in 2016 Dame Marion has done me the same great joy and signed the article also. I had alas missed the chance to ask Juliette to sign this great article also.
A little ancdote : Frédérique has the same article signed by Claudine and Juliette !
