André Heinrich

  1. Pierre Doris, Allez France (UK: The Counterfeit Constable), France, 1963.     Colette Brosset, the wife and usual co-star of comic and director  Robert Dhery,  ruled the roost.  In casting, at least.  She rejected Heinrich for being  too intellectual for a comedy. He was a French director (two shorts), assistant-director (for Walerian Borowczyk, Jean Gemillion, Jean-Pierre Mocky, Aain Resnais),  production manager (The Tin Drum) and one-time actor (another short: La jetée).  Because of its UK title, it was billed as “an arresting comedy.” It should have been locked up.
