SACHA GUITRY

Writer

Sacha Guitry, a very prolific playwright, has written over a hundred plays and has adapted many of them himself for the cinema. Interpreter of almost all of his films, he is the author of a work, rich in thirty-three films, which includes The novel of a cheater, Désiré, My father was right, Quadrille, They were nine celibates, La Poison, If Versailles was told to me, Assassins and thieves.
In 1914, Sacha Guitry stayed in Deauville. At Normandy, he met a nucleus of Parisians who had taken refuge on the Normandy Coast. He will organize a gala for the benefit of war wounded.  
The Little Red Book is the story of his stay in Deauville.

During the summer of 1956, Sacha Guitry (1885-1957) filmed scenes from her penultimate film in Deauville, on the beach and in the Hôtel Normandy: Assassins and Thieves, the first face-to-face meeting between Jean Poiret and Michel Serrault. Diminished, directing the shooting from his wheelchair, the filmmaker finds in Jean Poiret a rapid diction and a mixture of elegance and cabotinage very close to what was his acting.
