Stage actor, Film actor, Comedian, Humorist and Occasional Singer
Henry Laverne (born Henri Allum; 1888 or 1890 – 4 September 1953) was a French stage and film actor; Laverne was also a comedian and humorist for a decade, as well as a singer on occasion. As an actor, he was usually billed Henry-Laverne in his time (later Henri Laverne) and starred in about twenty films and plays; credits include six films and plays from Sacha Guitry, such as The Lame Devil (1948). As a comedian, he was one half of then-famous comic duo Bach and Laverne (1928–1938; Bach et Laverne(fr) in French); one of their 157 comedy sketches was adapted as the lyrics to Ray Ventura's hit comedy song "Tout va très bien, Madame la Marquise" (1935; lit. "All is very well, Madam the Marchioness").
