Draft of an article in French for the magazine "Cinéma" about the 1949 French drama "Manon" directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot, calling it a "capital work, not only for French cinema, but for cinema as a whole" (transl.). The film, starring Serge Reggiani, Michel Auclair and Cécile Aubry, is a loose adaptation of the 1731 novel "Manon Lescaut" by Abbé Prévost. It won the Leone d'oro in 1949 at the Venice Film Festival and was a popular success with over three million spectators in France. - One section highlighted by a thin green ink line at the left margin.
