Paris 2015: Yves Robert, Cimetière du Montparnasse #26

1920 – 2002
The above reference is to actor and film director Robert's book: Un homme de joie: Dialogue avec Jérôme Tonnerre (1998). And the buttons on his grave are references to his highly successful film La Guerre des boutons (1962), an adaptation of Louis Pergaud's novel of the same name. Robert also very successfully adapted Marcel Pagnol's novels La Gloire de mon père (1990) and Le Château de ma mère (1992). Other films he is noted for are: Ni vu, ni connu (1958), Alexandre le bienheureux (1968), Le Grand Blond avec une chaussure noire (1972), Le Retour du grand blond (1974), Un éléphant ça trompe énormément (1976) and Nous irons tous au paradis (1977).

This is the final of my posts on graves in the Cimetière du Montparnasse, and again I thank Joseph very much for his hospitality in helping us to find some pretty elusive graves. There are a large number of other graves in this blog, which can be located by keying 'Cimetière du Montparnasse' in the Google slug to the top left of the page.
