French actor Gérard Blain (1930-2000) looked like a cross between Alain Delon and James Dean. With his starring role in Le Beau Serge (1958) he became an icon of the Nouvelle vague. Blain was constantly in revolt against conformism. The handsome rebel appeared in 60 films between 1944 and 2000, and he also directed nine films.
