Marcel Carné

Highest Rated: 100% Les Visiteurs du Soir (1942)
Birthday: Aug 18, 1909
Birthplace: Paris, France
Carné began working in films as an assistant cameraman on Jacques Feyder's Les Nouveaux Messieurs in 1928. The next year he was assistant director to René Clair on Sous Les Toits De Paris, and went on to assist Feyder on Le Grand Jeu, Pension Mimosa, and La Kermesse Héroïque. He graduated to directing features in 1936, and with scriptwriter Jacques Prévert made a series of landmark films in the late '30s: Drôle De Drame/Bizarre, Bizarre, Quai Des Brumes/Port Of Shadows, and Le Jour Se Lève/Daybreak. During the Nazi occupation, the two made the classic period love story Les Enfants Du Paradis/Children Of Paradise. Their partnership ended after the liberation, but Carné went on to co-script and direct many handsome French dramas in the 1950s and '60s, most notably Thérèse Raquin/The Adulteress and Trois Chambres A Manhattan.
