Is Paris Burning?
Cast and crew
|Screenwriter:||Gore Vidal, Francis Ford Coppola, Marcel Moussy|
The only believable thing in this film was Gert Frobe as the German general in charge of Paris. The film was made in the 1960s and most of the civilians wore 60s clothes and hairstyles. That made the film unbelievable, as did the massive support for the Resistance among the French. No pro-Nazi French to be seen. That looked propagandist - as did the Catholic priest working for the Resistance. No mention of Pope Pius (Ratti) supporting Franco, Mussolini and Hitler. You get a more accurate account of collaboration in Ophuls's "The Sorrow and the Pity".
