Édouard Molinaro (born 13 May 1928) is a French film director and screenwriter. He was born in Gironde, Bordeaux.
He is best known for his comedies with Louis de Funès (Oscar, etc.), My Uncle Benjamin (with Jacques Brel and Claude Jade), Dracula and Son (with Christopher Lee), and the Academy Award-nominated La Cage aux Folles (with Michel Serrault and Ugo Tognazzi). Molinaro is still active as a director, although he produces works almost exclusively for television.
In 1996, his cinematic work was awarded the Prix René Clair, a prize given by the Académie française for excellent film work. —Wikipedia
