peekaboo & coucou. ici truffaut. sci-fi nerds may recognise him as the scientist, claude lacombe, from spielberg's 'close encounters of the third kind'...but he's one of the founders of the nouvelle vague - the french new wave. born #otd in 1932, francois truffaut started his career as a writer for the critical review, 'cahiers du cinema'. he went on to direct the semi-autobiographical 'les 400 coups', followed by 'jules et jim' & 'l'argent de poche'. he & godard were once thick as thieves, but fell out over political differences. i forgive him for that. hope you will, too. if you can find a copy of his book, 'hitchcock/truffaut', cherish it.
