Active in France from 1940, actor Georges Marchal branched out into Italian productions after WWII. He was at his best in swashbucklers and costume pictures, co-starring in the likes of Jupiter (1952), Messalina (1952), and Theodora, Slave Empress (1953). In 1951, he assumed the title role in Robinson Crusoe (1951). For Sacha Guitry, he played the young Louis XIV in Affairs of Versailles; and for Luis Bunuel, he essayed such parts as the dissipated duke in Belle de Jour (1967). On a less lofty note, Marchal was the villain in the kiddie flick Seven Dwarfs to the Rescue (1965) and was one of the stars of TV's Chateauvillon (1985). Georges Marchal was married to actress Dany Robin.
