This is an extremely important book." - Christopher Faulkner, author of The Social Cinema of Jean Renoir; "Conway's study offers fresh, challenging perspectives on French film history, on women in French cinema, and on the relationship between film of the 1930s and the city of Paris." - Judith Mayne, author of Cinema and Spectatorship"
