Marcel Pagnol (28 February 1895 – 18 April 1974) was a French novelist, playwright, and filmmaker. In 1946, he became the first filmmaker elected to the Académie française. Although his work is less fashionable than it once was, Pagnol is still generally regarded as one of France’s greatest 20th-century writers and is notable for the fact that he excelled in almost every genre – memoir, novel, play and film.
