Jean-Luc Godard supports Claude Autant-Lara

from "Godard : a portrait of the artist at 70 "/ Colin MacCabe ; filmography and research by Sally Shafto (page 132)

"Godard in a restaurant overhearing a man denouncing Vivre sa vie and going up to offer him the price of a cinema ticket 'so you can go and see an Autant-Lara.' "

I kind of wonder if that man did not take the money and go see Le Journal d'une femme en blanc a film that Autant-Lara made in 1965 (roughly the same time) which Godard put on his ten best films for 1965 list.
