Cheerful-looking, bag-eyed, balding French director who began as a writer, combining that talent with direction in the 1950s. As director, he worked with some of France's biggest stars: La Fugue de Monsieur Perle (1952), Sophie et le Crime/Girl on the Third Floor (1955), Maid in Paris (1956), The Bride is Too Beautiful (1956), Les Lavandieres du Portugal (1957), Christine (1958), Le Capitaine Fracasse (1961), Scheherazade (1963), L'Espion (1964), Living It Up (1966) and The Prairie (1971), his last, although he continued writing for big and small screens until 1983. His one marriage, to Bond actress Claudine Auger, ended in divorce after 10 years.
