Operation Screenshot (Films of the Fifties) François Truffaut's Les Mistons (1957)

"How can you make excuses for a 'first film' and above all how can you get by without excusing yourself? Still and all, if- thanks to the images of Jean Malige, the words of Maurice Pons, the music of Maurice Le Roux, the presence of Gerard Blain, Bernadette Lafont and five kids from Nimes-my 'stammered' truth becomes a little 'your' truth, then I'll repeat the offense soon and without too much embarrassment."
-François Truffaut, November, 1957-
