Jean Mercanton

Date of Birth: 17th May 1920
Details of Death: 4th November 1947
Country of Birth: France



Born in Marseille, Jean Louis Georges Mercanton was the son of film director Louis Mercanton. He made his screen début at the tender age of 17 days in the film "Miarka" (1920). In the late 1920s, his career got under way in earnest, usually (but not always) working for his father. However, his father died in 1932, whilst directing "Passionnément", and, following the release of the film "Rivaux de la piste" the following year, it was to be a another three years before the actor graced the silver screen again, in a movie appropriately entitled "Les grands" (1936). Jean was much in demand in the following years and may have continued a highly successful career, had he not succumbed to a polio epidemic late in 1947.
