History restore lost[edit]

This page has been vandalized. Names and titles were changed. Can someone restore the original? (unsigned)

Apparently it is lost as it does not show in the history archieve for the page.RoyBatty42 18:05, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Bio slug line[edit]

Can someone search around to see if Malle held dual citizenship, he should after marrying Bergin. Hence, he is both a French AND American director. His bio slug line (or whatever it is officially called) should reflect the fact that he made so many of his notable movies in English.RoyBatty42 18:11, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Marriage to an American national doesn't automatically convey citizenship to the spouse. Whether he's an "American" director as well as French depends on how much of his career was played out in the American film industry, so if you think that's the case, change it.

If someone understands how to insert footnotes, the wiki entry for I know it when I see it contains the reference for the assertion that this is perhaps the most famous line from the US Supreme Court. I tried to insert it but cause everything on the page below that point to disappear.RoyBatty42 18:05, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Supreme Court entry[edit]

I think the amount of space I took up with the material on the Supreme Court information is warranted. I never knew that Malle's film was the one that lead to Potter's famous "I know it when I see it" line about obscenity. Seems that after his films themselves, its what Malle should be known for, not sleeping with Candice Bergin.RoyBatty42 18:05, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Documentary Academy Award[edit]

Just discovered that The Silent World won the 1956 Academy Award for Best feature documentary. I cannot confirm if Malle was given his own statue, or was the film awarded a single one that assumably left in Cousteau's care.RoyBatty42 19:26, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Re: Malle not Nouvelle Vague director - disagreement[edit]

I think that Malle should be considered a part of the Nouvelle Vague, though I do see that some may not see it. One did not have to be a contributor to Cahiers du Cinema to be a part of the Nouvelle Vague. As to his style and technique, he certainly came out of that movement and shows many characteristics of it as well in his early films. His films explore tabou areas of human behavior, often court controversy, utilize neo-realist techniques in cinematography, and his later films bear a semblance of sensibility with Truffaut.

Moreover, he's included, without reserve, in Jean Douchet's seminal work French New Wave, Editions Hazan / Cinematheque Francaise, September 1999.

Fair use rationale for Image:Ascenseur echafaud.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Ascenseur echafaud.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
