written by late Pierre Tchernia
15 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

A few weeks ago, french cinema and television lost Monsieur Pierre Tchernia, one of the most popular screenwriter and director, after having been journalist and among all animator of Monsieur Cinema which helped thousands of youngsters to love cinema by showing the best sequences from classic movies. That's how I discovered the very first scene with Bourvil and Louis de Funès together in Poisson d'Avril.

Monsieur Pierre Tchernia was a very friendly figure in french cinema and television, thanks to his comedies, his most famous being le Viager (as a director) and of course la Belle Américaine (as a screenwriter).

But still there are a lot of unknown movies in his filmography. La Foire Aux Cancres isn't even mentioned in his filmo, it is directed by Louis Daquin, who already directed kids in Nous, Les Gosses. There are 7 sketches dealing with money, alcohol, thieves, ... shot in school, station, grocery, a lot of sets that have today disappeared... Fabulous casting for each sketch : Jean Poiret, Jean Carmet, Jean Rochefort, Jean Bouise, Jean Boyer, Jean Martin, Christian Marin, Julien Carette, Roger Carel, Guy Grosso, Yvonne Clech, Sophie Desmarets, Dominique Paturel, and others already written in the above casting.

Except that the name of Pierre Tchernia as a screen and dialog writer isn't mentioned. So long Monsieur Pierre.
