Biography by Hal Erickson

German-born actor Michel Auclair made his first impression upon international audiences with his supporting appearance in Jean Cocteau's La Belle et La Bete (1946). He gradually developed into a leading man in the post-war French cinema, with few appearances outside his adopted country. As his career continued into the 1970s, he could be seen on occasion in such international productions as The Day of the Jackal (1973), but still he was hardly a household name in the United States. Michel Auclair's most memorable English language appearance was his fourth-billed turn as Professor Emile Flostre in the Fred Astaire/Audrey Hepburn musical Funny Face (1957).
