Michel Lesignor

  1. Jean-Pierre Léaud, Les quatre cent coups (US: The 400 Blows), France, 1958.    All the kids tested by critic-turned-auteur François  Truffaut  for the lead role of his first feature wound  playing the classmates of  Léaud’s schoolboy  hero, the cherished “Antoine Doinel, Antoine Doinel, Antoine  Doinel…” While some of the other boys made more movies – and one, Serge Moati,  became a revered producer-director – this was Lesignor’s one and only film-making  experience.
