Gaumont is the oldest film company in the world. Founded by Léon Gaumont in 1895, the company has existed since the very beginning of cinema. Throughout its history, Gaumont has revolutionised all aspects of the film industry, from filming technology to broadcasting technology and film production. Gaumont and cinema are inseparable, so it seemed natural to enter into a partnership with the museum dedicated to France’s favourite actor, the Louis de Funès Museum in Saint-Raphaël. From La Traversée de Paris to Hibernatus, from the Fantômas trilogy to Le Grand Restaurant or Oscar, many of these films were produced by Gaumont and still remain among our greatest successes to date. We are happy and proud to be part of this adventure which gives well-earned recognition and legitimacy to a man who contributed so much to the magnitude and reputation of French cinema.
