Trivia:

On a day in 1918, while Paris was besieged by Germans, the first wife of Guitry, Charlotte Lysès, came home telling her husband she had gone to mass in the church of Saint-Gervais, but he knew that this church had been destroyed about two hours before by a shot of the Grosse Bertha, the gigantic German gun. That's why they divorced the same year. See more »
