Pierre Brasseur

1. – Roger Forster, Le Schpountz, 1938. Playwright and realisateur Marcel Pagnol Pagnol wrote it (on the set!) for Fernandel  and had to shoot it twice.  Brasseur was unavailable for the new takes although, as per tradition, or laziness, the replaced star is seen in some long-shots. He also played an uncredited role.

2.André Lacombe, La Faute de L’abbé Mouret, France, 1970. Realisateur Georges Franju had planned to film Zola, adapted by Jacques Prevert, with Brigitte Bardot as La Tueuse. And Pierre Brasseur as the scene (and film) stealing Archangias.
