Marie Laforêt (1939)is a French singer and actress of Armenian descent. After her first film appearance in the drama Plein Soleil (1960) opposite Alain Delon she became very popular and played many roles in the 1960s. As a singer, her first hit was the chirpy folkish Les Vendanges de l'Amour in 1963. In a translated version, the song also gave Marie a top ten hit in Italy, as La vendemmia dell'amore, a year later.
