Title[edit]

Should there really be a comma in the title (I know it makes sense in a way, but I don't think I've ever seen the comma used before)? --Camembert 19:10, 18 August 2005 (UTC)

OK, it's been a few weeks since my original query, so I'm going to move the article from here (Lacombe, Lucien) to Lacombe Lucien. Now I come to check, it seems I might have been responsible for the version with a comma, because when I wrote the original Louis Malle article, I mentioned the film with a comma there. I really don't have a clue why; I must have been drinking or something... --Camembert 12:47, 4 September 2005 (UTC)
I have sometimes seen the title written with a comma - it's the main character's name, written surname first, i.e. Frost, David. And for example the socialist BBC includes the comma here. However the billboard poster and the IMDB convince me that the comma should go. -Ashley Pomeroy 19:08, 4 September 2005 (UTC)
The DVD copy I have in my hands has a comma in name. Luigibob (talk) 03:17, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Lacombe Lucien in the milice[edit]

From my own memory of the film, Lucien Lacombe joins the Gestapo rather than the milice, shouting "Police Allemande" to overpass queuing in front of grocerys. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aldejerph (talkcontribs) 14:07, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

The Gestapo or "Geheime Staats Polizei" was Nazi Germany's number one "Home State Police" organization as the name indicates and it was essentially German staffed with headquarters in Berlin. I have carefully watched Lacombe Lucien and it is quite clear that the bad guys in the movie are members of the infamous "Milice Francaise" staffed by French traitors. Of course they were collaborating with the German Gestapo but they were NOT the German Gestapo. When Lucien Lacombe claims he is Gestapo to cut the waiting lines he is bluffing. Gerard De. Believe me I should know because, quite unfortunately , I personally heard first hand of terrible happenings of almost the same kind while living in Nazi occupied France as a youngster in early 1944. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.95.133.142 (talk) 03:03, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

It's Geheime Staatspolizei, and "geheim" means "secret", not "home". Hengistmate (talk) 10:50, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Schneider review[edit]

I initially removed the Schneider review, thinking that it was just more of the spamming of such information across Wikipedia. After looking at the contributing editor's edit history, I think I was mistaken and the edits were made in good faith. However, I've chosen to keep them out given that the edit still appears highly promotional and gives undue weight to this reviewer. --Ronz (talk) 02:18, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
