Charles Vanel

  1. Raimu, Les inconnus dans la maison, France, 1941. Both heavyweights were up for the lawyer Hector Loursat. The book’s celebrated Belgian author, Georges Simenon, settled matters by voting Raimu for what proved to be realisateur Marcel Carné’s final feature. A bad one, and very homo-erotic the way the gay Carné, 65, filmed then nake “angel” Gilles Kohler… in a debut that led him to Hollywood soaps: Dallas, All My Children and – talking of homo-erotic!Mel Gibson’s Lethal Weapon!
