Intimate Photo of Iconic French Film Director Francois Truffaut, 1970
This photo was taken by Bud Lee for the Esquire Magazine in 1970. While many have likely heard the name of this iconic director, the average moviegoer likely hasn’t seen his films. Per Wikipedia:
He is widely regarded as one of the founders of the French New Wave. In a film career lasting over a quarter of a century, he remains an icon of the French film industry, having worked on over 25 films. Truffaut's film The 400 Blows came to be a defining film of the French New Wave movement, and was followed by four sequels, Antoine et Colette, Stolen Kisses, Bed and Board, and Love on the Run, between 1958 and 1979.
