Noted French surrealist poet and one of the most influential scenarists of the 1930s and 40s. Prevert contributed to most of the landmark films of "poetic realism," collaborating with Jean Renoir ("Le Crime de Monsieur Lange" 1936), Jean Gremillon ("Stormy Waters" 1941) and, most notably, Marcel Carne ("Quai des brumes" 1938, "Le Jour se leve" 1939, "Children of Paradise" 1945). His last collaboration with Carne was on the underrated "Les Portes de la nuit" (1946), for which Prevert wrote the now-famous song "Autumn Leaves," used again in Robert Aldrich's 1956 film of the same name.
