The History of French Cinema is punctuated with masterpieces, L'Argent (silent), L'Atalante, La Kermesse heroicque, Poil de carotte, Carnet de bal, La Grande Illusion, La Femme de Boulanger,Le Diable au corps, Jeux Interdit, world-class writers, Jean Aurenche, Charles Spaak, Henri Jeanson, Jacque Prevert, Marcel Pagnol,world-class directors, Marcel L'Herbier,
Maurice Tourner, Jules Duvivier, Henri Decoin,
Jacques Feyder, Marcel Carne, Christian Jacque,
Henri-Georges Clouzot, and world-class actors, Arletty, Danielle Darrieux, Harry Baur, Jean Gabin, Charles Vanel, Julien Carette, Simone Signoret, Louis Jouvet, and this is only to scratch the surface so when we say that Les Enfants du paradis is the finest French film ever made the above names are just one tenth of what we are measuring it against and it still emerges triumphant.
