«Jean Gabin»

French actor. Appeared in films: "Bandera", "The glorious company," "Pepe Le Moko," "Grand Illusion", "handsome", "Naberezhnaya fogs," "Man-beast", "Tugs" "Megre arranges Silko," "The excluded," "Heroin," "Cat", etc.

Jean-Alexis Monkorzhe (Gaben) was born May 17, 1904 in the suburbs of Paris Merel. His father, Ferdinand Monkorzhe (stage Gaben Ferdinand) was an actor. His mother, Madeleine Petit, died early.

Families often move from place to place. "I was sorvantsom for which the school, for example, has always resembled a prison, where you had to run away so as not to lose their lives. I hated school, and it left me in a long time. Education was the worst of punishments, but because I was forced to go to school by force, I felt a lot of them, have not yet departed from it in fourteen years. "

His father saw him continuing acting dynasty, but Gaben Jr. dropped out of school is not for the stage. Jean worked on repairing the railway line, then he was a courier in the Paris company′s electricity.

In 1923, he came to the company "Foley Berger" in the role of statistics. Although Gaben still not considered the profession of actor, his vocation, after service in the Navy, he returned to the stage.

Acquaintance with the music-hall star, singer Mistenget who invited him to participate in their performances in "Moulin Rouge", little has changed in the creative destiny Gabena. He still sang, danced, smiled at the Paris revue. In 1927, Jean, composed of the troupe toured in Brazil.

With the advent of sound in cinema have become film operetta. A Gargur Gabena persuaded to go on trial at the studio Zhuanvil-Le-Pont. This proposal was all the more so by the way, that the new play "The Adventures of King Pozolya" in the "Buff-Parisi for the role of Jean was not found.

At the end of 1930 Gaben counterman Mane played in the screen operetta "Everyone is a" directed by Hans Shteynhofa. "After two or three movies, I noticed that the less changing my face, the" truth "I look, but during installation, all the feelings that I wanted to transfer, made without any apparent utrirovki", - said the actor.

If not all the early tapes Gabena shot at the "speed limit", remained in the memory, some have not been deprived of their merits. "The first time I discovered Jean in Lilac Heart" - recalled the director, Jean Gremiyon. - We were in a movie together with RenГ© Clair. Litvak watched a good movie, but we are with Rene Clair most struck by the game′s new actor, Jean Gabena. In truth, he did not "play", and lived on the screen of "natural" life, but we knew how to work and write in order to achieve this "natural" and that the audience did not notice these works, his game was innovatively simple and effective for that time ... "

On the shootings "moryachki Beautiful" (1932), Jean met with Madeleine Renaud. In the role deceive her husband and devoted friend, Jean has earned the praise of criticism of those years. "It is natural, radiates kindness, indulgence. It′s amazing to see how much it draws from the simple motion of the eyebrows, from the grip shoulders from barabanyaschih fingers on the table. "

For those who did not know it, Jean seemed brutal and boorish. Indeed Gaben a sentimental man. Partner felt his ocharovashkoy. As in the days of "Foley," it fun and amuse, was gentle and caring for women with sensitive persistent, zadarivaya their colors.

Autumn evening, during dinner with friends in Sannua, Jean met with the impressive young woman. She was dancing naked in the "Casino de Paris" and "Apollo" named Dorian (actually her name was Joan of fraud).

November 23, 1933, the day after the funeral of his father, Jean was combined with her marriage. The ceremony took place in a narrow range and very modestly. Heart newlyweds torn conflicting feelings - the pain of loss and joy of the future, as he believed, of happiness ...

After the passion settled, Gabena beginning to irritate vlastnost Doryan and its desire to conduct his case. The couple often argued and tormented each other, until the final gap in June 1940.

Gaben in early 1934, begins removed from the director Julien Dyuvive. The film "Maria Shapdelen" Jean plays the role of lone trappera in "Bandera" - Pierre Zhileta, fugitive, outlaw, the "Golgotha" - Pontius Pilate. Dyuvive literally snatched the magical ability to Gabena "truthfulness seconds.

In 1936 Dyuvive put "glorious company". The painting has not been a response from the audience. "We all, especially me, believed in the success of the Slavnov companies" - says Jean Gaben. - We thought that the story of working as a cooperative, was precisely what people want to see. The Popular Front was on the rise. This was a "Singing Tomorrow" and "beautiful hope". And for you! "

Not yet finished the year as is another picture Dyuvive involving Gabena - "Pepe Le Moko" based on the novel by Roger d′Ashelbe. Of course, this mob tape - a milestone in the creative talent. Jean played a gangster so truthfully that it has been treated a lot of prostitutes who wanted to "work" on it. Sickl film critic wrote: "Gaben, war, all of it entirely, to his benignity, and flashes of anger, with its physical reality, and safe reaction to his world of ruined lives and failed escapes, a world where a woman - always fatal - remains an elusive dream ... "

In 1936 Gaben starts to work with Jean Renoir - upgraded to screen "at the bottom of" Gorky he played the ashes. The director recalled: "... Gaben reached peaks of expression, when he did not have to raise the voice. Actor vast scale, he sought the greatest effects of the easiest ways. Especially for him, I thought the scene in the movie that could play a whisper. We have no doubt that this style of play will win the world and the legion shepchuschih actors. But the results of this fashion is not always successful. Gaben slight shake of his imperturbably person able to transmit the most violent emotions. Another actor would have to yell in order to achieve a similar effect. Jean shaken the audience, barely morgnuv eye. "

It is clear that above all the general taste of the joy of life, in particular the beauty of the kitchen, brought together by Gabena and Jean Renoir. More and better of the Caribbean on their common love for nature, to land, traditional values and a sense of belonging to a true French culture and an awareness of their roots.

Next picture of their joint "The Great Illusion" (1937) has collected a number of international awards, including those in Venice. Non-aircraft MarГ©chal allocated during the First World War, taken prisoner by the Germans, in spite of their simplicity and modesty - one of the peaks of world cinema.

Now Jean Gaben, as they say, hot cakes. He invites Gremiyon withdrawing "handsome." The hero of the picture, non-commissioned officer who breaks women′s hearts, but then destroys his life in the bar, Terziev passion for beautiful chippy (it played Mireille Balen). In the end, he kills his tormentress and gaining freedom.

After the "handsome" Gaben, along with Michelle Morgan played a tragic love story in "Naberezhnaya fogs" (1938) CarnГ©. Press called them "an ideal pair of French cinema." Jean, a soldier, deserter, and Nellie exchanged replicas of the famous: "You know, you have beautiful eyes ..." - "Kiss me ..." At that time, they moved some and shocked others.

And indeed, has never on screen she does not dare to demand that men kiss with such a simple brass, with the desire for beautiful eyes ...

"Gaben - this naked truth, which is forcing you to a screen - Morgan wrote in the book" Those eyes. "- he does not play his hero, he lives in it. His naturalness carries me."

In the next Renoir film "Man-beast" (1938) Gaben extraordinarily truthful and sincere plays the driver Lanta. To better understand his hero, Jean learned to drive a locomotive. The film had tremendous success both from the public and the press. Pierre Semar, Secretary General of the Federation of Railway Workers, presented the actor an honorary diploma engineers and traditional lubricator.

The popularity of Jean Gabena growing. Growing and fees: before the war he received a million francs for the role.

With the simplicity and warmth actor to play ordinary people in the paintings of Marcel CarnГ©. In one episode of "The day begins" (1939) Working-moulder (Gaben) Look in the mirror and recognize that the one eye he had a sad, another hilarious. Such contradictions inherent in many of the heroes Gabena - they have the courage, but at the same time-skinned.

On the set pictures Gremiyona "Tugs" (1940) again brought his fate, along with Michelle Morgan. For the French film that has been late the previous breath, loss of time. Michelle Morgan in the role of a mysterious woman appears from where the bride during the storm, and going into the unknown ... Jean Gaben - sea wolf, survived the unexpected love, doomed in advance to the evil rock tragic end ... Lonely walk in love to the empty beach, the owners abandoned the house in the sand dunes ... Wild nature during the storm ... "As a male seducer, which lure - and I was conquered - Michelle recognized later. - We have feverishly tried to make up for lost time. We have been so few of his questions! But we do not know. " This love, which, as everyone thought they were secretly suffered for many months, began in the summer of 1939-th ...

At the beginning of World War II Gaben was in Hollywood. Michelle Morgan, introduced him with a beautiful blonde dancer Ginger Rogers. Then Gaben came with Marlene Dietrich. Undoubtedly, the German actress was in love with Gabena. And in the life of this extraordinary woman of Jean meant a lot ...

In Hollywood, he managed to play in the lunar tide "Mayo and the" self "Dyuvive. In mid-April 1943-armourer Gaben officer was assigned to the escort ship "Elorn. In the vicinity of Cape Tenes in the convoy was attacked enemy aircraft. Gaben miraculously stayed alive. He then served as an instructor in the school, Marines, and commanded a tank "Suffler II". The most expensive prize in his life he thought Order of Merit battle. "

In 1946 he returned to the cinema. Together with him in the movie "March Rumanyak" (1946) played an incomparable Marlene Dietrich. "I can not say that it was a good film, although the scenario where we read, we loved - Dietrich wrote. - The war has only recently ended, lacking electricity, coal, food ... At this time Gaben helped me in the language. Careless conversational French was here nepozvolitelen. Gaben subtend syllables taught me and sat next to the camera, when I played the scene without him. Patience it was worthy of admiration ... "

The painting in the office collapsed. Marlene returned to Hollywood. Gaben married the beautiful Dominique Fourier series, which resembles Dietrich (even her little sister took over Hollywood stars). The marriage was successful. Jean Dominique lived with 27 years, they raised a son Mathias and two daughters - Florence and Valerie.

In 1947, Gaben create a convincing image of the financier Lussac Raymond Lamy in the film "The Mirror".

Then he was in the movie "On the other side of the lattice" (1948) Clement, Mary from the port "(1949), CarnГ©," It is easier to camel ... "(1950) neorealista Dzampy. Gaben was surprisingly organic and sentimental stories Lakomba night, my kingdom "(1951). His hero, driver Raymond Pensar, lost sight in an accident, find spiritual support in the Catholic Institute. At the Venice Film Festival XII Gaben won an award for best male role.

Jean long kept the loyalty of black-and-white film. In color it was shot reluctantly, often - in kostyumnyh, fictional films, such as "French Cancan" (1954), where he dances, as in his youth, or "The excluded" (1957), in which he played Jean Valzhana.

In the 1950′s, Gaben creates a gallery of so-called "strong men". In this paper, the actor is prudence - the accuracy of the distribution of "their" and "not its" scenes of shock and pass episodes. His tired, a little skill demonstration as it enters the flesh and blood characters, but always and above all masters, masters, regardless of whether he was a lawyer in the movie-Lara Claude Otan "In case of an accident" (1958) or the artist in the movie " ; Through Paris "(1956).

By agreeing to the role of Commissioner Megre in screening novels Simenona, Gaben off select costumes for "La Belle Zhardiner. Remember grandpa Monkorzhe, paver streets, leaving behind a "decent person" - to pull on trousers and at the same time with a belt - he is "clothed" in a similar Megre props. His Commissioner smoking pipe that Jean often happened in their lives.

Megre performed Gabena - not pathfinder, it is a connoisseur of life, the embodiment of common sense, prosaic look at the world. Jean-Luc Godard, watching the movie "Megre arranges Silko" (1957), wrote: "Do not be told enough about the great talent of Jean Gabena.

In 1958 Gaben removed, along with Brigitte Bardot in the film by Claude Otan-Lara "In case of an accident." Their pikirovka press presaged terrible storm. To everyone′s surprise, artists met as old friends. After the birth of a son Gaben do not want removed in the love scenes. "In the case of an accident" was the last film of this series.

He loved actors. "The kid" - his appeal to one who could be his "son" and whom he would like to see next to each other in movies and in life. "kids" it was Alain Delon, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Gerard Depardieu ...

From Belmondo Gaben met filming pictures "Monkey in Winter" (1962), with Alain Delone - in "Melody Underground" (1963). His relationship with Alan was very different than with Jean-Paul. This was due otherness of characters of two young actors. Belmondo was a jump in their work and personal relationships, Delon did not hide respect and admiration of masters. Gaben was on the rise Depardieu: "This will be able to play my role!"

In the years 1963-1968 Gaben participated in seven movies of "FAD" - "Komasiko. One of them, "Thunder of Heaven," Denis de La Patelera, brought him the greatest success in the postwar years - only in Paris, the picture looked about a million people.

Jean Gaben had excellent comic gift. Successful was his duet with Burvilem (via Paris). In 1965, together with his friend Jean Fernandelem created a company "Gafer. First it was the brainchild of the film "Hard age". This is a touching story of two old men. They fit in the affairs of their offspring, caused a small drama, and short on universal reconciliation. The shooting took place too quickly and without much training. The result was dismal, and the film has not been such a success, which is expected to Jean and Fernandel. Gaben forgot his inviolable principles: first, a good plot, and secondly, a good plot, and thirdly, a good plot.

In another comedy, "tattooed" Gaben again met with Louis de Funes.

He has twice worked with him ( "In Paris" and "Gentleman from Epsom). In small cooperative stages the first two films, Jean and Louis seem to have found a common language. Comic strength de Funes and Jean charmed with his dynamism and brought him pleasure. However, "tattooed" has failed in all respects: the film is not a success, was uninteresting in the artistic point of view, but also Jean de Funes and constantly squabbled during the filming ...

Need an actor in the concentration was such that a nail from his pocket driver, fallen on a soft surface, removes him from himself. He thunder when he was invited on the set, when the cooking has not yet been completed. Long standing or divagation led him into a rage. It seemed that over the bullied.

In 1970, Gaben began shooting the film "Heroin." Easy to understand that bribed Jean Gabena in the character of Antoine Maruyera reigning at chetyrehstah hectares of land and over his family. "The patriarch Norman, a major landowner who wants to be the masters of their own possessions and works of justice, some characteristics similar to Jean Monkorzhe - Gabenom in private life, managing the land which he bought with funds earned in the cinema", - wrote Jacques Sickl. You can certainly argue with the Film Critics, but in one he was really right: Gaben loved spending time at his vast estate Pishoner, absorb all of its state ...

In the film "Cat" (1971) Jean Gaben played along with Simone Seniora. The relative failure of the tape was a great disappointment for him. Next picture of "Black Flag reet on pot" (1971) was interesting for him just because he is the first and only once removed from Michel Odiyara.

"He could not refuse to work - says his daughter, assistant director of Florence Gaben. - You had to see it every morning, came to the studio and appeared on the set with an air as if he was forced to come here. But he was not forced - it was only a shamefaced cover that in this age, he still loved his job ... "

The commercial success of "Two in the City" (1973) and "sentence" (1974), where the stars on equal terms with him were Alain Delon and Sofia Loren, did not belong to him completely, and not erased the memory of the spectators in the previous failures Gabena. Besides, he too loudly announced his resignation and is in its own trap. In 1975, MaГ®tre Jean not filmed.

When Gabenu tired cinematic idleness, producer Gerard Beith asked him to play in the painting "The Holy Year" from director Jean Giraud. Filming began in early 1976. For many, this comedy is not the police claimed. Gaben again "put on" a suit of old thief in the law, fleeing from prison, along with a young criminal (Jean-Claude Briand) to go during the Holy Year in Rome, where it was before the arrest pripryatana extraction from the robbery.

"Holy Year" was his last film. Jean Gaben died 15 November 1976, shortly before receiving the Order of Merit. On Friday 19 November, the family and a few closest friends - Gilles Grange, Alain Delon, Zheline admiral and his wife - went up on board storozhevika "Detruaya. The ship went to the open sea at twenty miles from Brest. The crew built the deck and the captain Pichon down box with the ashes of great talent in the sea. This was the will of the deceased. Mathias and Florence was thrown into the sea bouquet fialok, beloved father of flowers ...
