Personal Quote:

The director must consider himself surrounded by enemies; what I mean is that, in a business where the taste of one man must prevail, he is surrounded by people who want to do nothing but improve their own tastes.


Was forced to stand down as representative of France's far-right National Front in the European Parliament after describing the Nazi gas chambers as a "string of lies". See more »
