Fernandel
(Fernand Contandin / May 8, 1903, Marseille, Bouches-du-Rhône, France - February 26, 1971, Paris, France)
   At age five, he performed the part of a small soldier in the play Marceau ou les Enfants de la République. Having trained as a music hall comedian and singer, he made his film debut in 1930 (Le Blanc et le Noir, Robert Florey, Marc Allégret). He starred in almost 150 shorts and feature films that made him the most popular French film comic actor for forty years.
