Raymond Pellegrin

  1. Jean Marais, Fantomas, France, 1964.       In compensation for losing the French 007 (OSS 117), Jean Marais was given the double whammy roles of the journalist Fandor and the titular criminal. Pellegrin was initially booked for the journo – and actually voiced him, as the Marais voice was famous and impossible to diguise as JFK’s, using it would spoil the “surprise. Marais couldn’t stand the scene-stealing tactics of the stutter, splutter, mutter, nutter comic Louisn de Funès.. “The sole actor I never liked as a human being,” said Marais. “Working with de Funès. made me the highest paid extra in French films.” Marais fled from fourth chapter, Fantomas en Russie, in 1968 and swiftly diversified, for safety, into secret agent Stanislas and… The Saint.
