What was the impetus driving these maverick directors. The American film Little Fugitive is discussed as an influence for Francois Truffaut. Heather discusses her favorite Truffaut film, Jules and Jim. Rusty brings up the early career of Jean-Luc Godard, and Jeff rounds out the discussion with a look at the musical Umbrellas of Cherbourg.
