BIOGRAPHY

This former extra and scenery painter began designing sets for the Parisian theater in the early 1930s before moving to the USA in 1941. Lourie did notable work for Max Ophuls, Robert Siodmak, Samuel Fuller and Charlie Chaplin ("Limelight" 1951). He is best known, however, for his many collaborations in France and America with Jean Renoir, most notably the art direction for "Grand Illusion" (1937) and "The Rules of the Game" (1939). Lourie's directorial work was confined to a handful of unremarkable, special-effects-laden films including "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms" (1953) and "The Colossus of New York" (1958).
