On Sacha Guitry (from a public domain encyclopedia): Sacha Guitry (1885 - 1957) was a French film actor, director, screenwriter and playwright. Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, he was the son of Lucien Germain Guitry (1860-1925), a major Parisian stage actor, who spent nine years at the Michel Theater, in St. Petersburg, before returning to France. It was during this time in Russia that Alexandre-Pierre Georges Guitry was born and nicknamed Sacha. An intellect and a prolific writer Guitry had already written the first of his 120 plays at age 17. In 1918 his theatrical production premiered in Paris to critical acclaim. In addition to his famous plays, Sacha Guitry wrote, acted and directed many films. He went on to be recognized as a truly innovative director, sometimes compared to Orson Welles because of his techniques and numerous innovations. He died in Paris in 1957.
