Melville does Molière?

I was interested to read this short note among other notes on the first page of the March 1953 issue of Cahiers du Cinema.

It is being said that Jean-Pierre Melville is contemplating the possibility of bringing Le Bourgeois gentilhomme to the screen with Marlene Dietrich, Vittorio De Sica and Maurice Chevalier. This combination, at least, has the virtue of originality.
