Marcel Dalio, born Israel Moshe Blauschild (17 July 1900 in Paris, France â€“ 20 November 1983 in Paris), was a French Jewish character actor. He had major roles in two of Jean Renoir's most famous films, Grand Illusion and The Rules of the Game. After divorcing his first wife, he married 17-year old Madeleine LaBeau (Yvonne from Casablanca) in 1938.
In June of 1940, LaBeau and Dalio left Paris ahead of the invading German army and reached Lisbon. It took them two months to get visas to Chile. However, when their ship stopped in Mexico they were stranded (along with around 200 other passengers) because the visas they had purchased turned out to be forgeries. Eventually they were able to get temporary Canadian passports and come to the United States. Both of Dalio's parents would later die in Nazi concentration camps.
In Hollywood, Dalio was never able to rescale the heights of prominence that he had enjoyed in France. Dalio appeared in 19 movies in America during the Second World War....

The Rules of the Game (original French title: La RĂ¨gle du jeu) is a 1939 film directed by Jean Renoir about upper-class French society just before the start of World War II. Renoir's film is in part an adaptation of Alfred de Musset's Les Caprices de Marianne, a popular 19th-century comedy of manners, and is now widely regarded to be Renoir's greatest film, and among the greatest works of cinema ever.
The film is an ensemble farce that turns into a tragedy in the final act. It is characterized by thematic elements common to much of Renoir's work, such as the moral relativism exhibited by its characters and an abhorrence of senseless death.

He is greeted by his friend, Octave, who reveals that Christine, the woman AndrĂ© loves, has not come to the airfield to greet him. AndrĂ© is heartbroken.
