Abstract

A documentary telefilm presenting the story of Sacha Guitry, a notable French playwright who took it as his mission to preserve French culture during the German occupation in World War II. The Resistance arrested Guitry during the Liberation of Paris in 1944 because of his conciliatory attitude toward the Germans, which he denied. In 1947, a judge determined that there was not enough evidence for a criminal case for "intelligence with the enemy" to proceed.
