He then played the title role in Luchino Visconti's Rocco and His Brothers (1960).

Critic Bosley Crowther of The New York Times wrote Delon's work was "touchingly pliant and expressive." John Beaufort in the Christian Science Monitor wrote: He was reunited with Rene Clement in the Italian comedy film about fascism, The Joy of Living (1961). More popular was an all-star anthology film Famous Love Affairs (1961); Delon's segment cast him as Albert III, Duke of Bavaria, opposite Brigitte Bardot.

The film was the seventeenth most popular movie at the French box office that year.

and was the first of Delon's films to be seen in America.

He spent time working as a waiter, a porter, a secretary and a sales assistant.

During this time he became friends with the actress Brigitte Auber, and joined her on a trip to the Cannes Film Festival, where his film career would begin.

He is known as one of Europe's most prominent actors and screen sex symbols from the 1960s.

He achieved critical acclaim for roles in films such as Rocco and His Brothers (1960), Plein Soleil (1960), L'Eclisse (1962), The Leopard (1963), The Yellow Rolls-Royce (1965), Lost Command (1966) and Le Samouraï (1967).

He took the film's distribution rights in certain countries instead of a straight salary.

Because this had never been done before in France, this was known as "Delon's method." The gamble paid off well, with Jean Gabin later claiming that Delon earned 10 times more money than he did as a result.

However, in 1965, Delon claimed "no one else has tried it since and made money." Nonetheless, the experience gave Delon a taste for producing.
