accompanying the French Resistance docu-fiction La Bataille du rail (René Clément, 1946). So great, in fact, was the uproar that Lotar’s documentary was removed from Saturday and Sunday screenings (Marion 1946). Even after the Zone’s physical disappearance, the genre lived on. Casque d’Or (Jacques Becker, 1952) owes to it little more than highly codified characters such as the ‘Apaches’ and immoral gigolettes; it otherwise alternates between the décors of Belleville – a faubourg annexed to Paris in 1860 – and the airy environs of Joinville-le-Pont, in the meanders of the

. Figure 3.2  Monsieur Batignole Conclusion The Gaullist myth promoted in the two decades following the war placed French resistance at the centre of history's retelling of the Occupation. The cultural and scholarly works of the 1970s, however, revealed the France of the time as a nation divided into distinct groups of resistants, collaborators, victims, bystanders

had been the fragmentation of the human form that the body itself, human physiology, must be re-asserted. He had begun to re-assert it already in Call Me Ishmael, where his account of the story of the whale ship Essex graphically recovered the details of human suffering and abandonment that lay behind Melville’s novel.4 The term ‘Resistance’ has two meanings. It refers to the French Resistance, of course, in which Riboud had been active, but it also sets up a field of relations, the kind of field Olson was beginning to explore as he contemplated ‘Projective Verse

market prices, rather than the more rigid system guaranteed by the Community. This, he argued, would both guarantee suitably high prices and protect consumers, at a cost to the Exchequer of £22 million. Peart could only gain the Commission’s agreement to operate a scheme of deficiency payments to subsidise beef producers for one year, as a temporary measure, while a long-term solution was studied. This was because of French resistance to the introduction of a system of national intervention. 51 In February Peart secured an additional concession: agreement to a new

Jean: ‘Vous avez épousé une grue’. 29 Agnès, who has a weak heart, has three fainting fits. Jean arrives at her bedside, declares his love and pleads with her to stay. The film ends on her words: ‘Je reste’. 30 Godard, in a characteristically coat-trailing gesture, invoked her previous line, ‘Je lutte’, 31 to claim that Les Dames was ‘the “only” film of the French Resistance’ (Rosenbaum 1998 : 22), bestowing upon it an

Léo Hamon was fully part of the French republican establishment but had espoused his parents’ communism until he broke with the Party over the Nazi–Soviet Pact. After the defeat of the French armies and the armistice he escaped to Toulouse, in the non-occupied zone, where most of his intellectual friends became rapidly involved in French Resistance.

, while Frontist values would again come to the fore in the left-wing dominated French Resistance. In the light of these dizzying reversals it might be better to see Renoir as pulled this way and that, rather than as following any clear progression. Some consideration of Renoir’s own personal relationship to France and the United States is also necessary. His direct knowledge of France was from the 1930s. His two Hollywood

the French Resistance. The expansion of French physical culture from 1940–1944 made it a central element in ordinary people's lives. The received wisdom on the Vichy regime, focusing on wartime limitations, leaves little space for this large number of sportsmen and -women, for the place of sport in their lives, or for the importance of sport politically and socially. The expansion of wartime sport is in part explained by greater limits placed on social and cultural gatherings. In France during the Vichy period, some avenues for civic and social
