Prince, Charles
(Charles Petitdemange / April 27, 1872, Maisons-Laffitte, Yvelines, France - July 18, 1933, Paris, France)
   After completing his secondary studies, he entered the Paris Conservatory. He won a first prize for comedy in 1896 and made his stage debut under the pseudonym of Seigneur, signing a two-year contract at the Théâtre de l'Odéon. Then he joined the Var­iétés troupe as Prince and soon became of the most popular boulevard actors. Hired by Pathé, he won in­ternational fame starring in comic movies (more than 200 movies from 1908 L'Armoire normande, short, Georges Monca, to 1933 Mille Neuf Cents, short, Roger Goupillières). Famous as Rigadin in France, he was known as Whiffles in England and the USA, as Moritz in Germany, and as Tartufini in Italy.
