Aug 05, 1960 - Paris, France - MARCEL MARCEAU (22 March 1923 Ð 22 September 2007) was a French mime artist and actor. In 1947, Marceau created 'Bip' the clown, who in his striped pullover and battered, beflowered silk opera hat, signifying the fragility of life, has become his alter ego, even as Chaplin's 'Little Tramp' became that star's major personality. At the age of 84, Marcel Marceau died at his home in Cahors, France, on Yom Kippur, 22 September 2007. His burial ceremony was accompanied by Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21, and the sarabande of Bach's Cello Suite No. 5. Marcel Marceau was interred in the Pre Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.
