Marcel Herrand

1897 - 1953

The actor Marcel Herrand began his stage career in the 20s and he was engaged in many well-known plays of those years because of his natural elegance.

His first appearances in movies came in the 30s into being with "Le jugement du minuit" (33), "Le domino vert" (35) and "Au service tu star" (36).
