Birthday: Sep 15, 1906
Birthplace: Not Available
An assistant to Jean Renoir in the 1930s, Becker co-directed the short Le Commissaire Est Bon Enfant with Pierre Prevert in 1934. The following year he helmed the five-reel Tete De Turc, which he later disowned, and in 1939 began L'Or De Cristobal, which was completed and signed by Jean Stelli. Thus, Becker's career officially begins in 1942 with Dernier Atout. Over the next two decades he directed and co-scripted a dozen more films, most notably the classic Casque D'Or, as well as the romantic dramas Antoine Et Antoinette and Edouard Et Caroline, the crime film Touchez Pas Au Grisbi (aka Grisbi), and the prisonbreak tale Le Trou (The Hole).
