German to English[edit]

The link for Belmondo's father, the sculptor, clicks through to the page for his son. If someone could fix that (I don't know how).

Someone must have fixed it at some point. The Crab Who Played With The Sea (talk) 14:57, 7 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Italian origin?[edit]

Belmondo is described to be "of Italian origin" in this article, however he was born in France and even his father was born in Algeria. So it can only be said that Belmondo's father was of Italian origin. Maikel (talk) 07:15, 17 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Yeah, it shouldn't be mentioned in the lead, unless it is relevant to his notability, per WP:OPERPARA. --Երևանցի talk 19:15, 17 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Jean-Paul Belmondo/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

The article, though informative, has a couple of writing problems. For example, under the section on Belmondo's personal life, the author begins by stating that Belmondo's father was a famous Sicilian sculptor. The author then goes on to cite various pieces of info about Belmondo, while using the generic "he" pronoun. It's confusing, as the reader doesn't immediately realize we're no longer reading about Belmondo's father. This is easily fixed by simply inserting JP Belmondo's name where appropriate. (It might also be useful to know the father's name.) There are also not very many footnotes, so we don't know the precise source of Belmondo's box-office success, his move to the stage, or his stroke. LMW67 15:20, 8 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Broke his own nose?[edit]

The article says he broke his own nose to get out of military service. However, the citation provided does not say that definitively, only saying that it may have happened, or that it may have been broken elsewhere. Another source I found (in French) says an angry superior broke his nose as punishment for finding him asleep on guard. (talk) 15:22, 12 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
