Handsome, romantic Continental lead for over five decades. Aumont began his career on the French stage, scoring a triumph in Cocteau's "La Machine Infernale" (1934). He entered film in France in the early 1930s and, after fighting with the Free French Army and earning both the Legion of Honor and the Croix de Guerre, made his Hollywood debut in "Assignment in Brittany" (1943). Aumont has alternated between stage and film and US and international productions. His most representative roles came as the suave, philandering magician, Marco the Magnificent, in "Lili" (1953) and as an aging matinee idol in Truffaut's valentine to filmmaking, "Day For Night" (1973). Married to actresses Blanche Montel, Maria Montez and--twice--Marisa Pavan, he is also the brother of director Francois Villiers and father of actress Tina Aumont.
