Louis de Funès-related events and news

You'll find here an history of all Louis de Funès-related events covered on this website since 2011. Of course, some information can now be obsolete, but I thought that you might be interested to see that Louis de Funès, several years after his death, still entertains people with new contents.

If you want to be kept informed when new events will be covered, you can use the RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds of this website to automatically receive the events in your web browser, mail client, or any other RSS-compatible software.

Two feeds are available: one can be used to receive the events in English, while the other can be used to receive them in French. They're updated each time an event is being published on the website. You can choose to receive one of these feeds, or you can also subscribe to both.

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) Feed Usually, to add RSS feeds to your favorite software, you must search for the RSS feeds icon (see aside), click on it, and select the feed you want to use. Some examples:

  • With Internet Explorer, the icon is located on the upper right toolbar (you can use the Alt+X shortcut)
  • With Firefox & Opera, the icon is on the right of the address bar.

Most RSS-compatible software also offers an option to re-download the feeds periodically (eg. each day, each week...) so that you can get updated news on a regular basis, without having to do anything else.

As I usually don't update the website on a very regular basis (eg. daily), I'd ask you to use a reasonable delay to download these feeds periodically (eg. once or twice a month) in order to save some of the website's bandwidth.

This event has expired on 02-04-2016.

Some very sad news from French newspaper Le Figaro: French actor Michel Galabru passed away this morning, January 4th 2016. He was 93.

Born on October 27th, 1922 in Safi (Maroc), his career went up along with Louis de Funès, through the Gendarme de Saint-Tropez series, on which he was cast, according to his own declarations, to promote Louis de Funès' character.

Very active in French popular comedies, with or without Louis de Funès - including "Les sous-doués", "Papy fait de la résistance" (where he replaced Louis de Funès in the role of Papy, just after Louis' death), "Astérix et Obélix contre César" and, more recently, "Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis", he was also a great theatre actor until his last days, despite being cast in a lot of sub-quality films.

Michel Galabru was a great friend of Louis de Funès. He was one of the few known celebrities to attend his funeral, according to the interview he gave in Laurent Delahousse's French TV show named "Un jour, un destin".

All our thoughts go to his friends and family.
