  • Character actor Marcel Hillaire frequently played Europeans on-stage, in cinema, and on television. Born Erwin Miller in Germany, he changed his name to Harry Furster -- a name he used in his early stage career -- during the Nazi regime and served in the army until he was discovered and imprisoned. Hillaire escaped and fled to the U.S. where he became known as Marcel Hillaire. He made his film debut playing the professor in the romantic comedy Sabrina (1954) and debuted on Broadway the following year.

QUOTES FROM Marcel Hillaire CHARACTERS

The Professor
Bonjour, mesdames et monsiuers. Yesterday we have learned the correct way how to boil water. Today we will learn the correct way how to crack an egg. Voilà! An egg. Now, an egg is not a stone; it is not made of wood, it is a living thing. It has a heart. So when we crack it, we must not torment it. We must be merciful and execute it quickly, like with the guillotine.
