Pierre Richard

 I love it when I can still, at this late date, discover an exciting performer whose work is completely unfamiliar to me. In this case, Pierre Richard, a French comic actor at his peak in the '70s and '80s. His best known films were remade in America as 1980s vehicles for Richard Pryor and Tom Hanks, leaving him known only to a select few in the US while a major iconic star in France.

  1. "The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe" is one of my very favorites, and is a strong case against American remakes.
