Poiret, Jean
(August 17, 1926, Paris, France - March 14, 1992, Paris, France)
   He attended acting courses at the Rue Blanche. From 1952 to the early 1970s, he formed a successful com­edy tandem with actor Michel Serrault (1928-2007). They co-starred in more than thirty movies and won international fame with the filmed adaptation of Jean Poiret's play La Cage aux Folles / Birds of a Feather / The Birdcage (created in 1973), directed by Edouard Molinaro in 1978. After their separation, Poiret au­thored other plays and performed interesting roles in such films as Le Dernier Métro / UK and USA: The Last Metro (François Truffaut, 1980), Poulet au Vinaigre / UK and USA: Cop au Vin (Claude Chabrol, 1985), and Inspecteur Lavardin (Claude Chabrol, 1986). He wrote the screenplay and dialogue of La Gueule de l'Autre (Pierre Tchernia, 1979) and co-authored the screenplay of La Cage aux Folles II / Il vizietto (Edouard Molinaro, France / Italy, 1980). He died of a heart at­tack after completing the only movie he directed.
