Roland Lesaffre (1927-2009)

1. - Gérard Philipe, Juliette ou La clef des songes/Juliette or Key of Dreams, France, 1951. He lost his main role when co-star Leslie Caron was spirited away by Gene Kelly for An American In Paris (on Roger Vadim’s advice). The book's writer, Jacques Viot, wrote an extra scene for Lessafre as a Legionnaire (“it fitted me like a glove”), and,Marcel Carné agreed. The director icon had first met Lesaffre when he interrupted a take of his old Marine mate Jean Gabin - “Jean, oh!  Jean, c’est moi  Lesaffre!” - while crashing the 1950 shooting of La Marie du port at Joinville studios. Now the PT teacher became an actor - and Carnés lover for many years (and films).
