2016 will definitely be a bad year for all artists, either singing or acting... Following Michel Galabru at the very beginning of the year, Claude Gensac, the other famous Louis de Funès onstage partner, just left us forever.
Born on March 1st, 1927 in Acy-en-Multien (Oise, France), she left her native region at 20 to start an acting career in Paris. She met Louis de Funès in 1952 while filming La Vie d'un Honnête Homme, and immediatly befriended him.
Consequently, she will be personally chosen by Jeanne de Funès, Louis' wife, to become her onstage partner, after watching her performing in a play named La Dame de Chez Maxim by Georges Feydeau in 1965.
She'll thus play Louis de Funès' wife on screen in the Gendarme de Saint-Tropez series, but also in Oscar, Les Grandes Vacances, Hibernatus, and Jo, among others. She'll also play other characters (not his spouse) in some other films with Louis, notably L'Aile ou la Cuisse, L'Avare (1980) and La Soupe aux Choux (1981).
Following Louis de Funès' death in 1983, which left her quite harmed (in 2000, she'll confess that "Louis de Funès killed (her)"), she'll choose to play in theaters instead, notably in La Perruche et le Poulet (2008), but also on the smaller TV screen, in series like Marc et Sophie (1987), Sous le Soleil (2005) and Scènes de Ménages (2012). She'd never stop acting, playing until the end of her life, being ever nominated at the Best Actress César ("César de la Meilleure Actrice") for the very first time in 2015, thanks to her role in Lulu Femme Nue.
All our thoughts go to his friends and family.
FufuWorld is celebrating its 16th birthday today with a new bunch of nearly 200 HD photos from Le Corniaud by Gérard Oury, in the Photos section.
While you're visiting, take the time to discover some sounds and videos of Louis de Funès' films!
For this website's 15th birthday, I slightly enhanced the Sounds page to include more photos on the whole page, instead of pushing all of them on the top. So, now, when a sound sample comes with a lot of photos, you'll have a few clips on the top, some more just above the dialogues, and the other photos on the bottom of the page. I hope it'll enhance your reading comfort!
Today, I enhanced the Photos and Sounds pages with a new pagination system, so they'll now be faster to load when you'll want to display a huge number of files.
I also slightly updated the Flat and Coloured Theme introduced on this website some months ago, with some minor cosmetic fixes.
FufuWorld is turning 14 today. Considering that its dark blue textured color sheme had been released on it's 4th birthday, I thought it was time to cleanup the dust!
As a result, you can now enjoy a brand new color scheme and theme, focusing on flat and colored shapes, to enhance overall text readability and visual comfort.
Built with newer browser technologies, this new theme will allow me to optimize the website for several, modern devices like smartphones and tablets. I'll continue to enhance it with further updates, adding more dynamic contents.
Feel free to contact me to tell me what you think about it!
FufuWorld is thirteen years old today, and to celebrate its birthday, you can now discover La Zizanie by Claude Zidi, thanks to ten sound samples grabbed from the film, in the Sounds, which completes the 600 HD photos from the same film.
While you're visiting, take the time to discover some other photos, sounds and videos of Louis de Funès' films, such as Oscar or Hibernatus, both directed by Edouard Molinaro, who passed away on December 7th, 2013.
