The Museum of the Gendarmerie and Cinema is dedicating its new temporary exhibition to Michel Galabru. From 17 April 2022 to 6 March 2023, come and discover the many facets of an actor who left his mark on the town of Saint-Tropez.
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth (1922 - 2022), the Gendarmerie and Cinema Museum pays tribute to a great popular actor who left an indelible mark on our town and on the building of the former Gendarmerie brigade of Saint-Tropez. He remains in the hearts of Gendarmes fans, THE chief of the Saint-Tropez brigade! He is also one of the longest-serving French actors, with no less than 250 films to his credit and more than sixty plays, as well as numerous TV films and radio programmes.
For a long time classified as an actor of "franchouillard" films, he surprised and seduced the public by interpreting with ease serious roles, disturbed and manipulative characters, in Le juge et l'assassin in 1976 by Bertrand Tavernier, for which he won a César in 1977. Touching and profound characters in Jean Becker's L'Été Meurtrier in 1983. Roles as a policeman, in Luc Besson's Subway in 1985, or as a bastard in Claude Berri's Uranus in 1990.
Michel Galabru also loves the stage "because that's my real job", he says. In 2007, he played alongside Gérard Desarthe in Les chaussette Opus 124 by Daniel Colas, a play for which he won a Molière at the age of 85.
In the course of the exhibition you will discover the career and the facets of this actor full of stage fright and doubts, generous, humble, funny and endearing.
