Jean Seberg: Cimetière du Montparnasse #4

The well tended grave of American actor Jean Seberg, almost certainly best remembered for her role in Jean-Luc Godard's nouvelle vague hit À bout de souffle (1960), where she played alongside Jean-Paul Belmondo. After several suicide attempts, she killed herself with a massive overdose of barbiturates. (The suicide of her second husband Romain Gary about a year later – from whom she'd been divorced for a number of years – had no bearing on Jean Seberg, Gary stipulated in a final letter.)

My first – and very long – post on the Cimetière du Montparnasse:
