1983 • 9th edition

From 3rd to 11th Sep­tem­ber 1983.
For the first time, the Fes­ti­val host­ed 70mm screen­ings. The young fes­ti­val­go­ers gave a tri­umphant wel­come to Adri­an Lyne’s musi­cal Flash­dance: they demand­ed a sec­ond screen­ing and refused to leave the cin­e­ma, lead­ing to the Fes­ti­val management’s request for an inter­ven­tion by the secu­ri­ty per­son­nel. In the com­pa­ny of Joan Fontaine, Hen­ry Hath­away, Lee Mar­vin, Arlene Dahl and James Mason, to whom the Fes­ti­val was pay­ing trib­ute that year, Deauville wel­comed the French artists Claude Brasseur, Jean-Pierre Aumont, Jean Carmet, Vic­tor Lanoux, Gérard Oury and Michel Blanc.
