Bad Timing

It's unfortunate that French actor Michel Serrault had to die around the same time two of the most famous filmmakers of our time passed, as mention and coverage of the veteran actor's death has been minimal in comparison. Serrault got his big break in Henri-Georges Clouzot's Diabolique, going on to star in numerous esteemed French films, like Get Out Your Handkerchiefs (Préparez vos mouchoirs), La cage aux folles (and its two sequels), Nelly & Monsieur Arnaud, Assassin(s), The Swindle (Rien ne va plus), Artemisia, The Girl from Paris (Une hirondelle a fait le printemps), and Joyeux Noël. He was 79.
