Cocteau & Piaf Died on the Same Day + The List of Pair Disappearing Act

  • Jean Cocteau & Edith Piaf
    Died on the same date..

    Edith Piaf and Jean Cocteau died on the same day. Cocteau, chivalrous at the last, obeyed the rule of ladies first. “Ah, la Piaf est morte,” he said on the morning of October 11 1963. “Je peux mourir aussi.” [Ah, Piaf’s dead. I can die too.”] And then he promptly died of a heart attack. Or so legend has it.
    It was Piaf’s funeral not Cocteau’s that brought Paris to gridlock.
