Plot: In François Truffaut's warm and funny love letter to the art of cinema, the director himself plays Ferrand, a director who's beginning a new film -- a somewhat cheesy melodrama known as "Meet Pamela." As the actors and the crew gather, get to know each other and start to work, a "family" is formed... but a family that will, in only a short while, break up again. Along the way, those involved in making "Meet Pamela" start to feel as if the events in their real lives are coming straight out of the movies, filled with romance, tragedy, melodrama... and just a little slapstick comedy. A humorous, kindly look into the life of a filmmaker at his labors. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Supporting Actress--Valentina Cortese (1974). Academy Awards: Best Foreign Language Film (1973).
