Birth certificate quoted in Michaël Mandl's CINÉMA MUET (Silent Film) collection: "La plupart des biographies indiquent une naissance le 05/03/1886, ce qui n’a pas facilité les recherches, d’autant plus qu’il n’est pas enregistré à l’état civil sous le patronyme paternel"

(Most biographies indicate a birth on 05/03/1886, which did not facilitate research, especially since it is not registered in the civil state under the paternal surname).
