Professional Career

Belmondo first appeared in the short Moliere (1956). His first film role was a scene with Jean-Pierre Cassel in On Foot, on Horse, and on Wheels (1957), which was cut from the final film; however he had a bigger part in the follow up A Dog, a Mouse, and a Sputnik (1958).

Belmondo had a small role in the comedy Be Beautiful But Shut Up (1958) (alongside a young Alain Delon), followed by a role as a gangster in Young Sinners (1958), directed by Marcel Carné.Belmondo supported Bourvil and Arletty in Sunday Encounter (1958). Jean-Luc Godard directed him in a short, Charlotte and Her Boyfriend (1958), where Belmondo’s voice was dubbed by Godard after Belmondo was conscripted into the army.

Breathless was a major success in France and overseas and launched Belmondo as an international name and the face of the New Wave – even though, as he said “I don’t know what they mean” when people used that term.In the words of the New York Times it led to his having “more acting assignments than he can handle”.

He had his first notable on screen comedy role in the anthology movie Love and the Frenchwoman (1960). Then he made two Italian films: supporting Sophia Loren in Two Women (1961), as a bespectacled country boy then opposite Claudia Cardinale in The Lovemakers (1961).

There were Hollywood offers, but Belmondo turned them down. “He won’t make films outside of France,” said director Mark Robson, who wanted him for Lost Command (1966). “He has scripts stacked up and he doesn’t see why he should jeopardize his great success by speaking English instead of French.”

Inspired by the success Alain Delon had producing his own films, Belmondo formed his own production company, Cerito Films (named after his grandmother, Rosina Cerrito), to develop movies for Belmondo.The first Cerito film was the black comedy Dr. Popaul (1972), with Mia Farrow, the biggest hit to date for director Claude Chabrol.
