Jean-Pierre Léaud, ComM is a French actor, best known for playing Antoine Doinel in François Truffaut's series of films about that character, beginning with The 400 Blows. He worked several times with Jean-Luc Godard, is a significant figure of the French New Wave. Born in Paris, Léaud made his major debut as an actor at the age of 14 as Antoine Doinel, a semi-autobiographical character based on the life events of French film director François Truffaut, in The 400 Blows. To cast the two adolescents, Truffaut published an announcement in France-Soir and auditioned several hundred children in September and October 1958. Jean Domarchi, a critic at Cahiers du cinéma, had earlier recommended the son of an assistant scriptwriter, Pierre Léaud, the actress Jacqueline Pierreux. Truffaut was captivated by the fourteen-year-old adolescent, who had appeared with Jean Marais in Georges Lampin's La Tour, prends garde!. He recognized traits they both shared, "for example a certain suffering with regard to the family...
With, this fundamental difference: though we were both rebels, we hadn't expressed our rebellion in the same way. I lie. Jean-Pierre, on the contrary, seeks to hurt and wants it to be known... Why? Because he's unruly, while I was sly; because his excitability requires that things happen to him, when they don't occur enough, he provokes them". In his final interview, Truffaut mentioned he was happy with how Léaud improvised within the flexibly written script. Jean-Pierre Léaud in the eighth grade at a private school in Pontigny, was a far from ideal student; the director of the school wrote this to Truffaut, "I regret to inform you that Jean-Pierre is more and more'unmanageable'. Indifference, permanent defiance, lack of discipline in all its forms, he has twice been caught leafing through pornographic pictures in the dorm. He is developing more and more into an disturbed case", but this unstable boy, who ran away with the older students on their nights out, could be brilliant and affectionate. Cultured for his age, he was very good at writing, he claimed to Truffaut that he had written a "verse tragedy", Torquatus.
Throughout the production of The 400 Blows, wrote Jay Carr "Truffaut would take Léaud to see rushes of Godard's Breathless each evening. They'd sit up late talking film with Godard, Rohmer, Orson Welles." Upon the filmmaker's death, the actor reminisced Truffaut was the first person he admired and that he "spoke to children like they were adults. He realized, he was purely intuitive. We operated in a sort of complicity."During and following the filming of The 400 Blows, Truffaut's concern for Léaud extended beyond the film set. He took charge of the difficult adolescent's upbringing after Léaud was expelled from school and kicked out of the home of the retired couple taking care of him. Truffaut subsequently rented a studio apartment for Léaud. Truffaut hired him for assistant work on The Soft Skin and Mata Hari, Agent H21. Léaud starred in four more Truffaut films depicting the life of Doinel, spanning a period of 20 years—after the short-film Antoine et Colette in 1962—beside actress Claude Jade as his girlfriend, wife, Christine.
Those films are Stolen Kisses and Board and Love on the Run. Truffaut stated that Léaud was the source of inspiration for the Antoine Doinel character and "I created some scenes just because I knew he would be funny in them—at least I laughed during the writing as I thought of him." He collaborated with Truffaut on non-Antoine Doinel films like Two English Girls and Day for Night and became the actor most affiliated with him. Although Antoine Doinel is his most familiar character, he found his performances in other films to be compared to his Doinel character whether there were legitimate similarities or not. Léaud is one of the most visible and well-known actors to be associated with the French New Wave film movement and, aside from his work with Truffaut, collaborated with Jean-Luc Godard, Jean Eustache, Jacques Rivette and Agnès Varda; the early 1970s was the peak of his professional career when he had three critically acclaimed films released: Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris, Truffaut's La Nuit américaine, Eustache's The Mother and the Whore.
In the Bertolucci film, Léaud appeared in the same film as a hero of his, Marlon Brando, although the two men never met, since all of Léaud's scenes were shot on Saturdays and Brando refused to work on Saturdays. In March 1966, Léaud won the Silver Bear for Best Actor at the 16th Berlin International Film Festival for his role in Jean-Luc Godard's Masculin, féminin, he was nominated for a César Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1988 for Les Keufs and was awarded an Honorary César for lifetime achievement in 2000. Léaud acted in films by other influential directors, such as Pier Paolo Pasolini, Jerzy Skolimowski, Aki Kaurismäki and Olivier Assayas and Tsai Ming-liang, he is married to the French actress Brigitte Duvivier. Nominated for the BAFTA Film Award for being the "Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Roles" for his role in The 400 Blows. Won the Silver Bear for Best Actor at the Berlin International Film Festival for his role in Masculin Féminin. Nominated for César Award for Best Supporting Actor at the César Awards for his role in the film Les keufs.

Jean Gabin was a French actor and sometime singer. Considered a key figure in French cinema, he starred in several classic films including Pépé le Moko, La grande illusion, Le Quai des brumes, La bête humaine, Le jour se lève, Le plaisir. Gabin was made a member of the Légion d'honneur in recognition of the important role he played in French cinema. Gabin was born Jean-Alexis Moncorgé in Paris, the son of Madeleine Petit and Ferdinand Moncorgé, a cafe owner and cabaret entertainer whose stage name was Gabin, a first name in French, he grew up in the village of Mériel in the Seine-et-Oise département, about 22 mi north of Paris. He attended the Lycée Janson de Sailly. Gabin left school early, worked as a laborer until the age of 19 when he entered show business with a bit part in a Folies Bergères production, he continued performing in a variety of minor roles before going into the military. After completing his military service in the Fusiliers marins, he returned to the entertainment business, working under the stage name of Jean Gabin at whatever was offered in the Parisian music halls and operettas, imitating the singing style of Maurice Chevalier, the rage at the time.
He was part of a troupe that toured South America, upon returning to France found work at the Moulin Rouge. His performances started getting noticed, better stage roles came along that led to parts in two silent films in 1928. Two years Gabin made the transition to sound films in a 1930 Pathé Frères production titled Chacun sa chance. Playing secondary roles, he made more than a dozen films over the next four years, including films directed by Maurice and Jacques Tourneur. However, he only gained real recognition for his performance in Maria Chapdelaine, a 1934 production directed by Julien Duvivier, he was cast as a romantic hero in a 1936 war drama titled La Bandera. The following year he teamed up with Duvivier again, this time in the successful Pépé le Moko, its popularity brought Gabin international recognition. That same year he starred in the Jean Renoir film La Grande Illusion, an anti-war film that ran at a New York City theatre for an unprecedented six months; this was followed by another one of Renoir's major works: La Bête Humaine, a film noir tragedy based on the novel by Émile Zola and starring Gabin and Simone Simon, as well as Le Quai Des Brumes, one of director Marcel Carné's classics of poetic realism.
He was divorced from his second wife in 1939. In the late 1930s Gabin was flooded with offers from Hollywood. After the German occupation of France in 1940, he joined Jean Renoir and Julien Duvivier in the United States. During his time in Hollywood, Gabin began a romance with actress Marlene Dietrich which lasted until 1948. However, his films in America – Moontide and The Impostor, the reuniting him with Duvivier – were not successful. Undaunted, he joined General Charles de Gaulle's Free French Forces and earned the Médaille militaire and a Croix de guerre for his wartime valor fighting with the Allies in North Africa. Following D-Day, Gabin was part of the military contingent, he was hired by Marcel Carné in 1945 to star in the film,Les Portes de la Nuit, with Marlene Dietrich as his co-star. She disliked the screenplay and feared that her German accent would not go over well with post-war French audiences; when she withdrew from the project, Gabin followed suit, leading to a falling out with Carné.
He found a French producer and director willing to cast him and Dietrich together, but their film Martin Roumagnac was not a success and their personal relationship soon ended. Gabin starred in a poetic realist film directed by René Clément,Au-delà des grilles/The Walls of Malapaga, in 1948, which won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Picture but garnered little recognition for Gabin. In 1949 he starred in his only role in legitimate theater in playwright Henry Bernstein’s La Soif, it ran in Paris for six months, with Gabin winning critical praise as “a first-rate stage actor.” Despite this recognition, subsequent films did not do well at the French box office, the next five years brought little more than repeated failures. His career seemed headed for oblivion. However, in the 1954 film Touchez pas au grisbi, directed by Jacques Becker, Gabin's performance earned him critical acclaim; the film was profitable internationally. He worked once again with Jean Renoir in French Cancan, with María Félix and Françoise Arnoul.
Gabin played Georges Simenon's detective Jules Maigret for three films in 1958, 1959 and 1963. Over the next 20 years, he made 50 more films, most of them successful commercially and critically, including many for Gafer Films, his production partnership with fellow actor Fernandel, his co-stars included leading figures of post-war cinema such as Brigitte Bardot, Alain Delon, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Louis de Funès. Gabin died of leukaemia at the American Hospital of Paris, in the Parisian suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine, his body was cremated, and—with full military honours—his ashes were scattered at sea from a military ship. He is considered one of the greatest stars and an important figure in the French cinema, was appointed Officier de la Légion d'honneur. In 1981, French actor Louis de Funès initiated the Prix Jean Gabin, a film accolade presented to upcoming actors working in the French film i
Pedro Infante Cruz was a Mexican actor and singer. Hailed as one of the greatest actors of the Golden Age of Mexican cinema, he is considered an idol among Latin American people, he along with Javier Solís were styled as the Tres Gallos Mexicanos. Infante was born in Mazatlán, but raised in nearby Guamúchil, he died on 15 April 1957 in Mérida, Yucatán, in a plane crash during a flight en route to Mexico City, after an engine failed on takeoff. His remains were identified by a bracelet found, his film career began in 1939 with him appearing in more than 60 films - 30 of them with his brother Ángel Infante, starting in 1943 he recorded about 350 songs. For his performance in the movie Tizoc, he was awarded the Silver Bear for Best Actor at the 7th Berlin International Film Festival. Pedro Infante was the son of Delfino Infante García, who played the double bass in a band, Maria del Refugio Cruz Aranda, he was the third of fifteen children. Although the Infante Cruz family stayed for some time at Mazatlán, in early 1919 they moved to Guamúchil.
In 1920 they moved to Sinaloa. As a teen, Infante showed affection for music, he managed to learn strings and percussion instruments in a short time. His wife, María Luisa León, who died of cardiac arrest on 27 October 1978, was somewhat well-off, economically. According to her memoir Pedro Infante en la intimidad conmigo, she convinced him of the need to move to Mexico City where they would find opportunities for this talented young man. In Mexico City, he sang the songs of composers including Alberto Cervantes, José Alfredo Jiménez, Cuco Sánchez, Tomás Méndez, Rubén Fuentes, Salvador Flores Rivera, René Touzet and others, his first musical recording El Soldado Raso was made on 19 November 1943, for the Peerless Records Company. Infante first appeared as an extra in the movie En un Burro Tres Baturros, or the more correct and succinct transliteration, “Three Baturros on a Burro”, his career as an actor in leading roles started with La Feria de Las Flores translated as "The Flower Carnival," in 1943.
In that same year, a friend and neighbor of Infante's wife, Carmen Barajas Sandoval, offered to introduce them to Jorge Negrete, a singer whom he admired. Barajas, who knew people in the business as she was the aunt of the child actress Angélica María, worked at The Sindicat of Workers of the Movies Production, S. T. P. C.. She succeeded in convincing Negrete to recommend Infante to the producer Ismael Rodríguez, others; as a result, he was invited to appear in different pictures, such as Vuelve el Ametralladora While married to María Luisa León, Infante met the dancer Lupita Torrentera Bablot, with whom he had three children: Graciela Margarita, Pedro Infante Jr. and Guadalupe Infante Torrentera. Irma Infante was born from his marriage to young actress Irma Dorantes. Infante appeared in such motion pictures as: Tizoc, along with María Félix, gained him the Silver Bear for Best Actor at the 7th Berlin International Film Festival; the film itself won a Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Film in 1958.
Both awards still exist: the Silver Bear is in the home of Ismael Rodriguez in Mexico City. The massive migration from the countryside to the cities during the 1940s fed the required labor force for rising manufacturing industries; this urbanization created the "working neighborhoods" and the culture of "la vecindad", found in Pedro Infante an identifiable icon for these, the new urban working class, with his character Pepe el Toro in the melodramatic trilogy made up of Nosotros los Pobres, Ustedes los ricos, Pepe el Toro, costarring with Evita Muñoz "Chachita". He worked with Sara García in many movies for Mexican cinema. Sara Garcia played the role of his loving but "no nonsense" grandmother in their movies together, in which she tried to get him to behave, but never succeeded. If that same urbanizing population had the nostalgia for the rural life, with it the popularity of ranchera music and the idealized charro, it was not until he played the poor carpenter with a strong chilango accent that Pedro Infante achieved a status, at least in Mexico, at the same level of celebrity such as Cantinflas, the Soler Brothers and Jorge Negrete and María Félix.
Despite that, he kept on playing the role of the charro and the northern Mexican rancher in Ahí viene Martín Corona in 1951 and Los hijos de María Morales in 1952. When Jorge Negrete died in 1953, Pedro was no longer in the shadow of the international idol though Pedro was affected by the disappearance of his idol. During Negrete's burial service some saw him inebriated, a rare sight given that Infante was not a drinker; the Mexican child star María Eugenia Llamas, only four at the time, made her screen debut with him in the 1948 film Los tres huastecos (The Three Men from H
