Chanel Solitaire - Timothy Dalton, Marie-France Pisier - Part 4/8
Coco meets Etienne's best friend, Arthur 'Boy' Capel, an unexpected ally, who encourages her to open a hat shop. Even after Emilienne's warning that he is a playboy with many mistresses, Coco begins to see Boy socially . . . This 1981 romantic biography of Coco Chanel is one of my favorite Timothy Dalton movies. Tim plays Boy Capel, Coco's one true love, a rich, self-made man who undoubtly returned her love and was very good to her, but he was never completely faithful. Tim, as usual, makes his character very appealing in spite of his flaws and you fall in love with him right along with Coco. Marie-France Pisier is stunning as Coco Chanel and Rutger Hauer, in his first English-speaking role, is wonderful as Boy Capel's close friend and Coco's first love, Etienne de Balsan. With Boy Capel and Etienne de Balsan's help, Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel rose from obscurity to the top of the fashion world. Wikipedia says: "Her extraordinary influence on fashion was such that she was the only person in the couturier field to be named on Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century."
