Producer Georges de Beauregard was one of the chief promoters behind the French New Wave movement of the late 1950s. Earlier in the decade, he helped revive the flagging Spanish film industry. He was born Edgar Denys Nau de Beauregard in Marseille, France, and as a young man he studied law, trained for military service and then worked as a journalist until 1947 when he founded his own news agency. In 1948, de Beauregard started a film export business that was in operation for three years, until he relocated to Spain to become a film producer there. He spent two years in Spain and then returned to produce the films of such New Wave directors as Godard, Varda, Chabrol, and Demy.
