Happy 70th Birthday Dany Saval

Danielle Nadine Suzanne Saval was born on January 5, 1942 in Paris, France. A former dancer, Dany played leads in a number of French films during the '60s and '70s. She’s probably best known to American audiences as one of a trio of lovely airline stewardesses being shuffled around by Tony Curtis [1925-2010] and Jerry Lewis [1926- ] in the slapstick comedy” Boeing (707) Boeing (707)” (1965). At one time she was married to the distinguished composer Maurice Jarre [1924-2009] and is the mother of production designer Stéfanie Jarre. Dany appeared in one Euro-western “It Can Be Done Amigo” (1971) with Bud Spencer and Jack Palance as Mary Bronston. Today we celebrate Dany Saval’s 70th birthday.

  1. Happy Birthday, Dany! Saw your film, "It Can Be Done, Amigo". You played Jack Palance's sister, the one who always complained about him firing his guns. It was fuuny! I wonder who that boy was. All I know is that his name was Chip. Bud Spencer was Coburn. I forgot your character's name. Well, anyway, Happy Birthday!
