French Singer Reggiani Dies

French singer and actor SERGE REGGIANI has died of a heart attack on Thursday (22JUL04). He was 82.

The CASQUE D'OR star, who appeared in 80 films, had a turbulent life that saw him fight a sustained battle against alcoholism.

French President JACQUES CHIRAC says of Reggiani, "He had a rare sensibility. He sang and embodied every emotion, every melancholy, every nostalgia."

Born in Italy in 1922, Reggiani moved into film with 1946's LES PORTES DE LA NUIT after a stint in the theatre.

In 1965 he embarked on a musical career with the help of actress SIMONE SIGNORET and her husband YVES MONTAND.
