(February 23, 1924, Montrouge, Hauts-de-Seine, France - July 22, 2000, Paris, France)
   The son of a businessman, he grew up in Montrouge, near Paris, and discovered cinema with his grand­mother. Intending to become a painter and a sculptor, he studied at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs. His love for movies led him to enroll in the IDHEC in 1946. He wrote musical reviews in Combat before landing a job as a trainee assistant director (1949 Occupe-toi d'Amélie, Claude Autant-Lara). He remained an as­sistant for almost ten years (1951 Le Mariage de Ma­demoiselle Beulemans / Fientje Beulemans, André Cerf, France / Belgium; Paris chante toujours, Pierre Montazel; 1952 Le Crime du Bouif, André Cerf; Le Huitième Art et la Manière, short, Maurice Régamey; 1954 Les Révoltés de Lomanach / L'eroe della Vendea, Richard Pottier, France / Italy; Les Hommes ne pensent qu'à ça, Yves Robert; 1955 Le Fils de Caroline chérie / UK: Caroline and the Rebels / USA: The Son of Dear Caroline, Jean Devaivre; 1956 La Bande à Papa, Guy Lefranc; Les Truands / UK: Lock Up Your Spoons, Carlo-Rim; Fernand Cow Boy, Guy Lefranc; 1957 Action immediate / US TV: To Catch a Spy, Maurice Labro; Ce Joli Monde, Carlo-Rim; 1958 Ni vu, ni connu, Yves Robert; Le Dos au Mur / UK: Evidence in Concrete / USA: Back to the Wall, Edouard Molinaro; Le Fauve est lâché / USA: The Tiger Attacks, also co-screenwriter, co-adapter, Maurice Labro; 1960 Les Yeux sans Visage / Occhi senza volto / UK: Eyes Without a Face / USA: The Horror Chamber of Dr. Faustus, Georges Franju, France / Italy).
