Remembering Luis Malle

Louis Malle was born on October 30, 1932 in Thumeries, Nord, France and is the brother of producer Vincent Malle [1944-2011] During his career Malle became one of France’s most renowned directors both at home and internationally. He was known for the variety and breadth of his work as a feature-film-maker and a documentarist, as well as its frequently controversial subject matter. Although often associated with the Nouvelle Vague directors, Malle’s debut preceded the arrival of the movement and he is often considered to be a traditionalist rather than an iconoclast in matters of style. Malle directed one Euro-western, “Viva Maria!” (1965). Louis was married to actresses Anne-Marie Deschodt (1965-1967) and Candice Bergen [1946- ] (1980-1995] and was the father of actresses Alexandra Stewart [1939- ], Justine Malle [1974- ] and producer Manuel Cuotemoc [1971- ]. Malle died on November 23 1995 in Beverly Hills, California. Today we remember Luis Malle on what would have been his 80th birthday.
