Frenchman Using Gestures ...

Attached is a travel article that was penned by the French film actor Jean Murat (1888 - 1968)- who plied his craft in over ninety movies before his career came to an end.

Mr. Murat was not terribly impressed with New York at all

*He found the New Yorker's love for all things French irksome.
*Although he found New York women to be pretty, he believed they had terrible hats.
*He opined that Fifth Avenue was no match to the boulevards of Paris.

Yet he did love Greenwich Village and Washington Square Park; believing it to be wholly unique and unpretentious. He was not at all amused with the bourgeois New Yorkers who regularly defamed the neighborhood and the bohemians who lived there.
