Louis De Funès, born Louis Germain De Funès De Galarza

(Courbevoie, 31 July 1914 – 27 January 1983 in Nantes)

 

 

His family belonged to the nobility of Seville (with descent from the Marquis of G): the father, Carlos Luis De Funès De Galarza (1871-1934) was a lawyer, became diamantaio, and his mother Leonor Soto Reguera ( 1878-1957) took care of the family. On 27 April 1936 Louis married first Germaine Louise Elodie Carroyer (born 7 March 1915 and died on 28 September 2011) with whom he had a son, Daniel Charles Louis (born 12 July 1937). After the divorce, which occurred on 13 November 1942, on 20 April 1943 she married Jeanne Augustine Barthélèmy (born on February 1, 1914 and died on 7 March 2015 was a great-grandson of Guy de Maupassant) in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. They had two sons: Patrick (born on 27 January 1944), radiologist and Olivier De Funès (born 11 August 1949), chief pilot of Air France. He became a pianist, he made good use of this ability in some of his films such as Big shot but not too much ( The Nitwitwho stole the President? (Le Grand Restaurant), and Blessed among women ( L'homme Orchestre, and had a good knowledge of the movies of his day. He began to get back into work sneaking into the theater and, despite his brief appearances, was spotted early for his comic vein, especially by Sacha Guitry who hired him several times. The main aspects of your humour are his ability to mimic and make faces, character, irrepressible and persistent in the expression of the emotions or opinions, expressing anger, emit grunts and noises, the gesticulating in a rapid pace. In the 1950s he began to become known thanks to films like Ah! Les Belles Bacchantes and the sheep to five Feet, where alongside the greatest actors of the era, but also the law of smarter, of 1957, where she plays the role of a poacher who evades the watchful eye of a forester, which earned him the title of best Current Comic. However he had to wait for the 1964 to become really famous with the first part of the series of GendarmesA girl in Saint-TropezJust two months later, triumphed again in the role of a representative of law enforcement, Inspector Juve, Fantomas 70 ( Fantômas ), alongside Jean Marais and Mylène Demongeot. While the success among the general public grew more and more, at the end of 1964 turned Big shot but not too much, by Gérard Oury, where he appeared alongside Bourvil. 

In 1966, it was the turn of three men on the run La Grande vadrouille ), always with Bourvil, French movie that held the record for the largest number of tickets sold at the box office in France (17 million) until the arrival of the film Titanic James Cameron's 1998. During the same period, De Funès, returned to the theatre. In late November of 1971, began performances of Oscar at the theatre of the Palais Royal, where De Funès played most nights until September 1972, except for a summer break. In March 1973, appeared in the mad adventures of Rabbi Jacob Les Aventures de Rabbi Jacob ) which was released on 18 October of the same year. Soon after, he found himself back on stage at the comedy of the Champs Elysees: this was his final appearance in the theatre. Until 25 April 1974, he played almost 200 times the play by Jean Anouilh, La Valse des Toreadors (The Waltz of the toreador)Since that time, permitted himself a rest in the castle of his wife's family, located at Le Cellier, in the Loire-Atlantique department, oversaw much of gardening, refusing to take any other commitment in anticipation of shooting Next, the film undoubtedly strenuous Gerard Oury, Le Crocodile, scheduled for may of 1975 and in which was supposed to play the part of a South American dictator. But in March of 1975, while pre-production de Le Crocodile was already well under way, was the victim of a heart attack which caused him to finally give up his stage career. His film career was compromised, because insurers didn't want to incur the risks of shooting another film until Claude Zidi, the Director of the wing or the thigh? ( L'aile ou la cuisse) ,succeeded in obtaining insurance for two weeks of filming. He continued to shoot other films, like The Discord with Annie Girardot, in 1978, or the gendarme and extraterrestrials, in 1979. In 1980, he produced a film version of a play by Moliere according to his own personal interpretation, thus the miser (l'avare) reached the big screen, though he had little success. In the same year, Jerry Lewis handed him the César for his career.Some time later, he turned a film adaptation of a novel entitled La Soupe aux choux, of René Fallet, along with Jean Carmet and Jacques Villeret. His career came to an end the following year, Le Gendarme et les gendarmettes, when on 27 January 1983 was the victim of a heart attack that proved fatal. He is buried at the cemetery of Le Cellier. He was also dedicated movie Papy fait de la résistance (1983), in which he was to have the role of Grandpa, but after the sudden death was replaced by Michel Galabru. Despite not having the need to use (if not infrequently) in several films in which he took part, Louis De Funès has never given up on "dressing up" from time to time, to accentuate, sometimes to excess, the comic situations in which did evolve his characters. The talented De Funès fit well in the context of the comic duo, fixed or occasional basis, with the most varied kinds of actors:

 

Claude Gensac, known with the nickname "Ma biche ". Is the female accomplice of the characters in De Funès;

Michel Galabru as superior of De Funès Gendarme series and that the wingman burlesque;

Bourvil as house painter, with whom he escapes from the Germans and helps the three British paratroopers;

Yves Montand in Delusions of grandeur. 

Coluche , who plays the son of De Funès in talking the wing or the thigh?;

Bernard Blier, the Inspector chasing him in Jo and the gazebo

Olivier De Funès, his son, in The great vacations, Beato tra le donne, Fantomas threatens the world, who stole the President?, Louis de Funès and grandfather frozen, Clinging to a tree, poised on a cliff overhanging the seaand Oscar in the stage version;

Jean Gabin,in Enemies ... for skin

Jacques Villeret, in La Soupe au choux

Jean Marais, in Fantomas ' 70, Fantomas threatens the world and Fantomas against Scotland Yard: 

Maurice Risch, above all The major holidays, a few episodes of a girl in Saint Tropez and The Discord;  

Totò in I tartassati and Totò, Eva e il pennello proibito; De Funès and Toto always remained friends, the latter often dubbed in France from the first.

 

Italian film critic writes Edward Campos: De Funès never wanted to play dramatic roles, staying until the end an incurable clown.

Perfectionism and the fussiness, accompanied by an attitude often anxious, have marked the artistic path. At work you will never, like a pro. Has been for two decades (from 1963 to 1983) the undisputed champion of the French box office and one of the world's most famous French actors. He had the ability to adapt over time to the tastes of the most demanding and cultured audiences away. His comedic genius attracted millions of viewers in theaters, knowing that with him they were safe, not risking ever to attend a show scandalous, melancholy or violent. He constantly made movies for the whole family and this is one of the secrets of his success.
