Two Truffaut Notes
Two interesting notes from Eugene Walz François Truffaut:a guide to references and resources.
speaking about the rumor that Truffaut had appeared in René Clément's film Le Château de verre in 1950. "Though both Godard and Truffaut visited the set of the film for a half day, only Godard was "recruited at the last minute as an extra", by their friend Pierre Kast who was assisting the director. Godard and Jacques Rivette appear very briefly in the film but not Truffaut." (page 289)
Speaking about The 400 Blows: "Truffaut appears fleetingly in the rotor, the spinning carnival ride. Truffaut got on the ride to reassure the nervous Léaud." (note 1491 page 288)
