Long Description:
[E] At the death of Yul Brynner in New York, his young wife Kathy Lee decided to settle in France, where the couple owned property in Calvados. She left the United States with the urn containing the ashes of her husband she buried in the garden of his Normandy's home.
A few years later, Kathy Lee sells the house but did not leave her husband. However as she often has to travel it is difficult to move with the urn.
That's why she finally decided to entrust the ashes of her husband to the monks of the Abbey of Saint-Michel de Bois Aubry for them to watch over the eternal repose of the actor who was like them of Orthodox confession.
Here's how the American movie star known throughout the world and who spoke eleven languages, lies in this little garden of Touraine's countryside!

[F] A la mort de Yul Brynner à New-York, sa jeune épouse Kathy Lee décida de s'installer en France ou le couple possédait une propriété dans le Calvados. Elle quitta les Etats-Unis avec l'urne funéraire qui contenait les cendres de son mari qu'elle enterra dans le jardin de sa maison normande.
Quelques années plus tard, Kathy Lee vend cette maison mais pas de son mari. Or comme elle doit souvent voyager il lui est difficile de se déplacer avec l'urne funéraire.
C'est pourquoi elle se décide finalement à confier les cendres de son mari aux moines de l'Abbaye Saint-Michel de Bois Aubry pour qu’ils veillent sur le repos éternel de l’acteur qui comme eux était de confession orthodoxe.
Voici comment cette star de cinéma américaine connue du monde entier et qui parlait onze langues, repose dans ce petit coin de campagne de Touraine !
