Jean Seberg's secret wedding to Romain Gary has been a mystery for years - until now
They were the most intriguing celebrity couple of their era. They had recently dined with JFK and Jackie Kennedy at the White House.
The international press knew that they were having a love affair. Their movements were closely watched.
They managed to elude the paparazzi to marry in secret in a village in Corsica. There were only five other people there, including two French intelligence officers and the village mayor.
