    Here’s a google translate of the French obit. RIP.
    The actor Jacques Herlin, second part to the impressive filmography, died Saturday at the age of 86 in a Paris hospital, told AFP his talent agency Artmedia.

    Born August 17, 1927 in Paris, Jacques Herlin has more than one hundred films to his credit in nearly 60 year career. His last major role was that of brother Amédée in “Of Gods and Men” by Xavier Beauvois film awarded the Grand Jury Prize of the Cannes Film Festival in 2010.
    This spring, he still turned in “Street ravishing” after a novel by Boris Vian, to be released in September on France 2.

    “second part to the [etc.]” = “a supporting actor with an impressive filmography”

    “‘Street Ravishing'” probably = “The Street of Beauties”
