Aventure malgache

whether, in addition to the financial

interest he has in this affair,

he has a more direct

and personal interest?

Here we go again, fanciful ramblings!

Oh really!

I ask the court clerk to please

take note of the following question.

What was it that Michel attempted to do

to my client's wife?

Your Honour, I object!

If you continue with these

personal attacks against the witness,

I shall prevent you from speaking.

I shall take measures

against such an accusation

to defend my honour!

Honour? Come on now!

Nothing would prevent me

from telling you straight

that you are a gangster, Michel.

Gentlemen, this is intolerable!

The court shall enforce

all the necessary sanctions.

Hearing adjourned.

See you soon, Michel,

see you soon.

You'll pay for this, watch out.

Yes, until the next instalment,

see you soon, Michel.

Yes, I'm beginning to see this chap now:

a fat, vicious rascal.

No, you're on the wrong track,

imagine more of a harmless dandy

A dandy, ah, that's different then.

Why didn't you expose Michel's schemes,

didn't you have any proof?

No proof, my dear boy!

I had more than enough proof to get him,

and I would have done...

but for a small announcement

on the radio!

...to ask if they are ready

to join me in finding,

between soldiers,

after the struggle and for honour,

the means of ending hostilities.

Armistice, come on!

It's treachery, more like.

Good god, a Marshal of France,

Ptain, the hero of Verdun.

Will the veterans of Madagascar

accept this surrender?

Never! Never!

My friends!

- We must take immediate action.

- Yes, it's over to you, Mr Clarus.

If you lead the movement,

we'll follow you.

We have to contact

the other divisions on the island.

- Tananarive, Tamatave, Majonka.

- We have to keep up the struggle.

He first worked in the film business in 1926 writing subtitles for silent films. He then began writing his own scenarios for Gaumont British Studios and later Ealing Studios under Sir Michael Balcon. During World War II he made films for the Ministry of Information. One of Alfred Hitchcock’s favourite devices for driving the plots of his stories and creating suspense was what he called the MacGuffin. Ivor Montagu, who worked with Hitchcock on several of his British films, attributes the coining of the term to MacPhail. more…
