Jean-Louis Barrault net worth & biography:

Jean-Louis Barrault (French: [baʁo]; 8 September 1910 – 22 January 1994) was a French actor, director and mime artist, training that served him well when he portrayed the 19th-century mime Jean-Gaspard Deburau (Baptiste Debureau) in Marcel Carné's film Les Enfants du Paradis (Children of Paradise, 1945) and part of an international cast in The Longest Day (1962).Jean-Louis Barrault studied with Charles Dullin in whose troupe he acted from 1933 to 1935. At 25 years of age, he met and studied with the mime Étienne Decroux (who played Baptiste's father in the Carné film). From 1940 to 1946 Barrault was a member of the Comédie-Française, where he directed productions of Paul Claudel's Le Soulier de satin and Jean Racine's Phèdre, two plays that made his reputation.Over his career, he acted in nearly 50 movies including Les beaux jours, Jenny, L'Or dans la Montagne and Sous les Yeux d'occident.In 1940, he married the actress Madeleine Renaud. They founded a number of theatres together and toured extensively, including in South America.He was the uncle of actress Marie-Christine Barrault and sometime sponsor of Peter Brook. He died from a heart attack in Paris at the age of 83. Jean-Louis Barrault is buried with his wife Madeleine Renaud in the Passy Cemetery in Paris.Jean-Louis Barrault, Reflections on the Theatre:"In fact it is the simplest things that are the most tricky to do well. To read, for example. To be able to read exactly what is written without omitting anything that is written and at the same time without adding anything of one's own. To be able to capture the exact context of the words one is reading. To be able to read!"Barrault from Melinda Camber Porter's Through Parisian Eyes: Reflections on Contemporary French Arts and Culture: "When I wake up in the morning I want to feel hungry for life. Desire is what drives me. When I go to sleep, I feel I have experienced a small death, so that I can wake up in the morning renewed and reborn." Wikipedia

#Fact
1Barrault was named director of the Theatre de France on Paris' Left Bank in 1959. In 1968 it was announced that he had been dismissed. The coup de grâce was administered in a stern letter from old friend, André Malraux, France's Minister of Culture, who had initially asked Barrault to preside as its director. The cause of Barrault's dismissal was his role in the student riots there. During the demonstrations, anarchist rebels from the Sorbonne "liberated" the Odéon Theatre and turned it into a discussion hall. They also destroyed 50% of the sets, ripped up red velvet seats and urinated on costumes. Barrault wept when he saw the damage, but government officials believed that he tacitly allowed the rebels to take over. Barrault also took to the stage to proclaim his sympathy with student goals and to denounce France's "bourgeois culture." His removal set off a chorus of protests by French stage figures and critics.
2In 1957, received a Special Tony Award for the French Repertory.
3Uncle of Marie-Christine Barrault, uncle-in-law of Roger Vadim.
