(1860–1925). Actor and father of Sacha Guitry, he was an admired leading man of the Paris stage in the 1890s, often playing opposite Bernhardt and Réjane. His personal magnetism, intelligence, and naturalness brought him many successes, e.g. in Mirbeau's Les Mauvais Bergers (1897) and Rostand's L'Aiglon (1900).
