French actor Alain Delon will be honoured at the Cannes film festival later this month with a screening of \"Plein Soleil\", Rene Clement\'s 1960 adaptation of \"The Talented Mr Ripley\", in which he starred. The tribute will be paid to the 77-year-old Delon, who now lives in Switzerland, as part of the Cannes Classics series, festival organisers said Tuesday, confirming a newspaper report. \"Plein Soleil\" (Purple Noon) marked a turning point in Delon\'s career and led to the critically acclaimed \"Rocco et ses Freres\" (Rocco and his Brothers). Delon, regarded as a talented and versatile actor, has made some 100 films in a career lasting over half a century. The original version of \"Plein Soleil\" has been restored by the Immagine Ritrovata laboratory in Italy with financing by the France-based film production and distribution company StudioCanal.
