Komor, Serge
(Serge Komerovsky / July 29, 1929, Nice, Alpes-Maritimes, France - March 29, 1986, Paris, France)
   Of Russian descent, he was the son of Leonide Komerovsky, a former assistant to Abel Gance and a production manager for Films Albatros (a film com­pany led by Russians settled in Paris). He appeared as an extra in several movies, including Vénus aveugle (Abel Gance, 1941), and landed several jobs at the Victorine Studios in Nice. He worked as a unit producer (1959 Mademoiselle Ange / Ein Engel auf Erden / USA: An Angel on Wheels / An Angel on Earth, Geza von Radvanyi, France / West Germany), production man­ager (1960 Tirez sur le Pianiste / UK: Shoot the Pianist / Canada: Shoot the Piano Player, François Truffaut), and assistant director (1966 A 077, sfida ai killers / Bob Fleming . . . Mission Casablanca / 077 défie les Tueurs / USA: Killers Are Challenged, Anthony M. Dawson = An­tonio Margheriti, France / Italy). Actress Marie-France Pisier made her film debut with him. He introduced the seventeen-year-old performer to François Truf-faut, who hired her to play Colette in L'Amour à Vingt Ans. His poor health (he suffered from Parkinson's disease) disrupted and finally broke his career. He was an assistant to his brother, TV director Youri, for a TV movie shot in Nice (1968 L'Ombre blanche).
