Colette Marchand, a French ballerina whose long-legged glamour made her an international star in Roland Petit’s ballets in the 1940s and 1950s, and who was nominated for an Oscar for her role in John Huston’s “Moulin Rouge,” died on June 5 at her home in Bois-le-Roi, France. She was 90.

I saw quite a lot of her performances when she came to New York with Petit's various companies--most memorably in "Le Combat". NYCB performed it as "The Duel". Marchand was a

hard act to follow for any dancer in that role and no one ever topped her.

Rest in peace.
