Henri Virlojeux

  1. Georges Audoubert, L’Avare, France, 1979.      Louis  de Funès never said no to Oscar  – in four different Paris stage productions –  but forever slid out of various  offers to tackle Moliere’s Miser.  He nearly left it too late,  finally playing Harpagon, four years  before his 1983 death,  in  a picture  which he  co-directed with his favourite film-maker Jean Girault.  (They made the six-film Gendarme de Saint-Tropez franchise, plus seven other movies). And cheekily “Fufu“ asked Virlojeux to be Anselme… when he had been the last screen Harpagon on TV the year before!
