Aventure malgache (1944)
Clarousse: Yes, let's be realistic. Listen carefully, my friends - and I stress friends - I think you will agree that in Madagascar we have only three options: to become Boche slaves; to submit to the Japanese yoke; or to go on our knees to England. Personally, I prefer the last option.
Governor: I know your influence among the natives and ex-servicemen. Use that influence in the public interest, Clarousse. We must use every means to combat this insidious Gaullist propaganda.
Clarousse: Which is on the increase, I hear. Count on me, Governor; you are a good judge of men. And, I may say, of cigars. This one is excellent.
Michel - Chef de la Sureté: Have a glass of rum; it won't hurt you. I have bad news for you. You are leaving for the penal colony, the road to nowhere. It's a great pity, Clarousse. A man like yourself to lose everything over this business. Titling at windmills and ending up in the chain-gang.
Michel - Chef de la Sureté: Well? Are you prepared to bite the bullet and squeal? Drink, it'll sober you up.
Clarousse: The condemned man's last drink. Your health, you rotten hypocrite!
Clarousse: This is Free Madagascar broadcasting to you tonight. Calling every night. Proclaim Madagascar's political and economic autonomy. Join the Allies! Listen to me, everyone - and that includes you, Michel, you filthy hypocrite, you Vichyite lackey, born of Pétain and of criminal instincts - Vichy will let the Japanese take over Madagascar as they did Indo-China. The Allies, I hope, will forestall them. When the Allies come, greet them as liberators, not as enemies. Do not obey orders from the Vichy traitors to fight them. Good night until tomorrow.
