Les scénaristes sont les seuls auteurs des films : fais en sorte qu’on le sache. Amitiés 

Abstract : Marcel Achard was active in the cinema from the 1930s, as a screen- and dialogue-writer as well as a filmmaker. This was a time when the status of « author » was a matter for controversy in the theatre (with the emergence of the « author-stage director ») as well as in the cinema (film directors had been able to join the SACD [Society of Dramatic Authors and Composers]) since 1929 and they were considered legal « co-authors », along with screenwriters, after the law of 1957. In this context, the correspondence between Marcel Achard and Henri Jeanson or Marc Allégret reflects the controversies and tensions arising from the « author » status – discussions which continued in certain films, enhancing both the writing and the aesthetics.
