Jacqueline Bisset to receive Lifetime Achievement Award


Washington: Golden Globe-winning English actress Jacqueline Bisset will be honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Odessa international film festival.

She will be awarded a Golden Duke at the festival's closing ceremony, scheduled to be held in the Ukrainian Black Sea port city this Saturday, reported the Hollywood Reporter.

Bisset began her film career in 1965, first coming to prominence in 1968 with roles in 'The Detective', 'Bullitt', and 'The Sweet Ride', for which she received a most promising newcomer Golden Globe nomination.

She gained mainstream recognition in 1968 when she replaced Mia Farrow for the role of Norma MacIver in 'The Detective', opposite Frank Sinatra. The film was made at Fox, whose executives had been impressed by Bisset's performance in Two for the Road.

In the 1970s, she starred in Airport (1970), Day for Night (1973) which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Bisset also received France's highest honour, the Legion d'honneur, in 2010.
