The Rules of the Game (La regle du jeu)

Role in movie: Robert de la Cheyniest
C

onsidered one of the greatest films ever made, The Rules of the Game (La règle du jeu), by Jean Renoir, is a scathing critique of corrupt French society cloaked in a comedy of manners in which a weekend at a marquis’ country château lays bare some ugly truths about a group of haut bourgeois acquaintances. The film has had a tumultuous history: it was subjected to cuts after the violent response of the premiere audience in 1939, and the original negative was destroyed during World War II; it wasn’t reconstructed until 1959.

Marcel Dalio

Marcel Dalio, nom de scène de Marcel Benoît Blauschild, est un acteur français, né le 23 novembre 1899 au 33 rue de la Bûcherie dans le 5e arrondissement de Paris et mort entre le 15 novembre et le 18 novembre 1983 dans le 16e arrondissement de Paris. Après un passage au Conservatoire d'art dramatique, il fait ses débuts dans les années 1920 au cabaret et dans les revues de music-hall, très en vogue à l'époque. Au début des années 1930, son personnage commence à intéresser le cinéma. Son visage expressif devient célèbre après qu'il apparaît dans de grands films comme Pépé le Moko (1936) de Julien Duvivier, et dans des chefs-d’œuvre de Jean Renoir, La Grande Illusion (1937) et La Règle du jeu (1939). Il épouse en 1936 l'actrice d'origine roumaine Jany Holt dont il divorce en 1939. Sa carrière française prometteuse est cependant interrompue lorsque l’Allemagne envahit la Pologne le 1er septembre 1939. D’origine juive, Marcel Dalio et sa seconde épouse (1939), l’actrice Madeleine Lebeau, s’enfuient au Portugal. À Lisbonne, ils achètent deux visas pour le Chili à un fonctionnaire corrompu. Arrivés à Mexico, les visas se révèlent des faux grossiers qui ne font pas illusion. Marcel et Madeleine risquant la déportation, ils en appellent au droit d’asile politique. Le Canada leur délivre des visas temporaires et ils gagnent Montréal. Pendant ce temps, l’Allemagne a envahi la France et les occupants, découvrant des photos de Dalio, produisent une série d’affiches le désignant comme l’archétype du juif. Le film Entrée des artistes réalisé en 1938, ressort sur les écrans après qu'on a pris soin de retourner avec un acteur aryen toutes les scènes où Dalio apparaissait.
