Cayatte, André


Cayatte, André
(February 3, 1909, Carcas­sonne, Aude, France - February 6, 1989, Paris, France)
   He was only sixteen years old when he created the literary review Transit, which published such poets as Jean Cocteau, Philippe Soupault, and René Char. Hav­ing graduated with a bachelor's degree in literature and a doctorate in law, he was a lawyer for twelve years before switching to journalism. He authored a collection of poems (1927 Mesures pour rien, Les Ca­hiers Libres) and novels, including La Peau des Autres (Editions Baudinière, 1936) and Le Traquenard (Albin Michel, 1939). Then he entered films as a screenwriter (1938 L'Affaire Lafarge, as uncredited co-screenwriter, Pierre Chenal; Entrée des Artistes / USA: The Curtain Rises, as co-screenwriter, Marc Allégret; 1940 Tempête / Tempête sur Paris, as co-screenwriter, dialogist, Bernard-Deschamps; 1941 Remorques / USA: Stormy Waters, as co-screenwriter, co-adapter, Jean Grémillon, shot in 1939-1940; Le Club des Soupirants, as co-adapter, co-dialogist, Maurice Gleize; Montmartre-sur-Seine, as co-screenwriter, Georges Lacombe; 1942 Caprices, as dialogist, Léo Joannon; 1943 Le Camion blanc, as dialogist, Léo Joannon; 1945 Farandole, as adapter, André Zwobada; 1946 Le Couple idéal, as co-screenwriter, Bernard-Roland) and wrote for TV (1989 Le Grand Secret / El gran secreto / Das grosse Geheimnis, TV miniseries, Jacques Trébouta, France / Canada / Spain / West Germany). He started his directing career adapt­ing French literature classics before filming movies à thèse, which notably denounced the imperfections of the judicial system. Other credits (as assistant direc­tor): 1942 Annette et la Dame blonde (Jean Dréville); (as supervising producer): 1948 Manù il contrabandiere (Lu-cio de Caro, Italy / France); (as technical supervisor): 1952 Le Banquet des Fraudeurs (Henri Storck, Belgium); 1963 Kriss Romani (Jean Schmidt).
