For his best remembered role, as Jėricho the ragman in Children of Paradise (Les Enfants du Paradis,1945), he was cast at short notice to replace the collaborator Robert Le Vigan; Jėricho's scenes had to be reshot after Le Vigan fled. Renoir was briefly the director of the Théâtre de l'Athénée in Paris, taking over after the death of Louis Jouvet in 1951. Pierre Renoir's son was the cinematographer Claude Renoir (1913–93), who is not to be confused with another brother, also called Claude Renoir, known as 'Coco', (1901–69).
