9 3/4 inch x 7 1/2 inch Still of JEAN-PIERRE LEAUD & PATRICK AUFFAY in the 1959 François Truffaut Drama THE 400 BLOWS (LES QUATRE CENTS COUPS).

François Truffaut’s first feature is also his most personal. Told from the point of view of Truffaut’s cinematic counterpart, Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud), The 400 Blows sensitively re-creates the trials of Truffaut’s own childhood, unsentimentally portraying aloof parents, oppressive teachers, and petty crime. The film marked Truffaut’s passage from leading critic to trailblazing auteur of the French New Wave.

The still is in very good condition with corner pinholes.
