Storyline

What was the world like when such personalities as Jean Cocteau, Marcel Achard, André Roussin or Françoise Giroud were twenty? Let them tell you in person and let Cocteau present you such geniuses of the the first half century as Sarah Bernhardt, Auguste Renoir, Pablo Picasso or George Bernard Shaw at work. But you will also discover more mundane events like women taking part in a smoking competition or such weird inventions as the "walking truck". Come into the theater, ladies and gentlemen, and discover the twentieth century from birth to middle age!... Written by Guy Bellinger
