Gabin, Jean

(1904-1976)
   actor
   Born Jean-Alexis Moncorgé in Paris, Jean Gabin, as he is known, first appeared in the Folies-Bergère, then in operettas before beginning a long career in film (1930). He acted in more than 100 films, many of them classics (J. Duvier's Pepé le Moko, 1937; marcel carné's Le Quai des brumes, 1938; jean renoir's La Grand Illusion, 1937; La Bête humaine, 1938; and French Cancan, 1954). Additionally, he did a series of films in which he played the character inspector Maigret (Inspector Maigret, 1958; The Sicilian Clan, 1969). Through his many films, Gabin's characterizations evolved from youthful, generous, restless, and popular to become, without losing their spontaneity and strong presences, those of mature, then old, men, often nonconformist and always energetic and strong, but also gentle.
