G rard Oury (29 April 1919, Paris - 20 July 2006, Saint-Tropez) was a French film director, actor and writer. His real name was Max-G rard Houry Tannenbaum. The son of Serge Tannenbaum, a violinist, and Marcelle Houry, a journalist, Oury studied at Lyc e Janson de Sailly and at the National Conservatory of Dramatic Art. He became a member of the Com die-Fran aise just one year before World War II, but fled to Switzerland to escape the anti-Jewish laws decreed by the Vichy government. After 1945 he re-started his career as an actor, performing in the theatre and in supporting roles in the cinema. Oury became a movie director in 1959 (The Itchy Palm) and gained his first success in 1961 with Crime Does Not Pay (Le crime ne paie pas).show more
