    Thanks for remembering Bastille Day, when the Parisian mob broke into an almost empty jail guarded by a half-dozen elderly pensioners. A truly marvelous scene that makes one momentarily see the French of Vichy the way they would have liked to see themselves and the way in the postwar they persuaded the rest of us to see them. What about the progenitor of this scene in the POW camp in Grand Illusion!
