Philippe Leotard (1940-2001)

  1. Patrick Dewaere, La meilleure façon de marcher, France, 1975. Claude Miller, ex-assistant to Carné and Demy, and Truffaut’s production director, wanted Léotard for his first feature. The politician’s brother was as every bit as fragile as Dewaere and yet Miller saw them both as the virile moniteur show-off at a boys’ summer camp, humilating one of the team by outing him as a cross-dresser. Dewaere was keen on playing a baddy. “Patrick had the physique of a small bull,” said Miller, “but inside he was Dostoievski.” Having made Le Juge Fayard dit “Le Sherif” with Patrick in 1976), it was Léotard who persuaded Dewaere to accept Claude Lelouch’s offer for Edith et Marcel… the film the actor was about to start when he committed a never explained suicide.
