Jean Piat

  1. Georges Descrières, Arsène Lupin, France-Belgium-Canada-Italy-Netherlands-Switzerland-West Germany, TV, 1971-1974.     France had just one channel (ORTF), so television  was not for the new Young Turks or stage or screen.  But the gentleman thief (very much a French cousin of the British Raffles created six years earlier in 1899) made a Euro-superstar out of the Comédie-Française actor. Hence,  despite his panoply of stage roles,  headlines of his 2013 obituaries simply cited Lupin.
