Le Figaro

The actor André Valmy second role prolific cinema, theater and television from the 1940s and 1980s, died Wednesday at age 96 at his home in Nice, his family said today.

 "I became an actor absolutely by chance. My father was a janitor at the Théâtre Antoine but did not want actors in the family," liked to say the actor, who embodied fifty film roles between 1940 and 1965. Among the most known, that of P'tit Louis, "We are all murderers" (1952) André Cayatte, or that the fishing master in Le Guellec "If every guy in the world" (1956), signed Christian-Jaque.

 It is also seen alongside Lino Ventura and Charles Vanel in "The Gorilla salute you" (1958) and Yves Montand in "Sub-killers" (1965), by Costa-Gavras.  He also played in a couple of plays and thirty television films until the early 1980s, but especially in dubbing it will be illustrated by lending his voice to include Laurence Olivier (in "Marathon Man "), Lee Marvin, Telly Savalas, Robert Mitchum and Anthony Quinn.
