Jeanne Moreau, one of the iconic faces of the French New Wave, has died at the age of 89. 

Orson Welles called Moreau 'the greatest actress in the world' after they first collaborated on the 1962 English-language film 'The Trial'. With her charisma, intelligence and sexuality, she created her own space in the French Cinema. She's mostly known for her role from Truffaut’s New Wave classic 'Jules et Jim', but she has worked with many art-house directors like Michelangelo Antonioni, Louis Malle, Roger Vadim and Luis Buñuel. 

Which role, would you remember her for?

Peter, Why would you  ask him to remove her role (Empress Elizabeth Petrovna) from Catherine the Great? Her picture is used for the character she plays:

Also, too bad you can't find a way to add her narration in 'The Lover'. She had a marvelous voice.

Akash Charudatta Deshpande,

I'm assuming you will be creating a list for this poll, if you have not already done so.

If you could also change "would" to "will", that would be great. :)

I think you should also add a space before the dash in the title:

'Very nice memorial poll and so well-written, too. 'Tough choice but I think Marika in The Trial because that's the film of hers that I saw first and have seen it so many times.
