Biography

Paris, France
Short, stocky Jacques Marin was a wonderfully droll character actor, who tended to pop up in international films of the 60's and 70's, whenever a typically French-looking gendarme, police inspector, concierge or shopkeeper was needed. His trademark was a toothbrush moustache and a deadpan expression -- except for a perpetually reproving frown -- which suggested deeper thought processes were going on.
