French businessman. After a number of odd jobs, he opened a strip-tease club on 21 May 1951. The club grew to become the famous Crazy Horse Saloon.
Says Bernardin, "I bought my first projector at the flea market. Not long afterwards, I fixed up some slides so I could project my dancer's name on a screen. Then one day in 1954 I got mad while trying to focus the thing and a girl's name suddenly appeared on the nude body of a dancer who was rehearsing. I played with the light and shadows for a moment then called up the sculptor Cesar to show him my brainstorm ...". His vaulted cellar on the Avenue George V, a Parisian sight that is a must, remains the only place in the world where the most beautiful girls in Europe are glorified by music and light.
Bernardin married on 2 October 1939 and was later widowed. He made a second marriage 23 February 1962 and divorced 24 April 1985. His third marriage was to "one of his girls," Lova Moor, on 28 June 1985.
On 30 August 1994 Bernardin bought a shotgun and on 15 September 1994, at about 2:30 AM, he committed suicide in his office, Paris.
