Truffaut Resnais and the 400 Blows

This is translated from the ending an article by Cahiers editor Jacques Doniol-Valcroze covering the exhibition of Les Quatre cents coups at Cannes in May 1959 as an event.

Bazin dead, Les quatre cents coups, which he is the posthumous producer of, could only be dedicated to him. André alive, -- and the notion of what his joy would have been brings a lump to my throat, -- André in attendance, this heart-rending and buoyant film on the tenderness of this world might naturally have been dedicated to [Alain] Resnais.

Cahiers du Cinema June 1959 page 42 my translation.
