Jean De Briac
Birth: Aug. 15, 1891
City of Paris
Īle-de-France, France
Death: Oct. 18, 1970
Los Angeles
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Actor. French-born character player of Hollywood films. His most notable roles were in silent films, as The Knifer in Clara Bow's "Parisian Love" (1925) and as the Stage Director in Greta Garbo's "The Divine Woman" (1928). After talkies arrived De Briac was typed as a French waiter or maitre d', even in movies with Parisian settings, and his debonair looks and waxed moustache made him a perfect foil in several Laurel & Hardy comedies. His credits include "High Heels" (1921), "The Eagle" (1925), "Paris at Midnight" (1925), "Blotto" (1930), "Be Big!" (1931), "Diamond Jim" (1935), "Anthony Adverse" (1936), "Shall We Dance" (1937), "Swiss Miss" (1938), "A Chump at Oxford" (1940), "Watch on the Rhine" (1943), "The Song of Bernadette" (1943), "To Have and Have Not" (1944), "Gilda" (1946), "The Razor's Edge" (1946), "Carrie" (1952), "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" (1953), and "Tender is the Night" (1962). De Briac was born in Paris, and came to the United States after World War I. He appeared in 111 films. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
