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.
