The great lie
A subject which would be used and used in the forties in the American melodramas such as Bette Davis/Edmund Goulding's "the great lie" and "the old maid" or Olivia De Havilland's " To each his own" .

Girl (Claire) gets pregnant by a playboy short of the readies .Her sister Catherine who cannot have a child decides to adopt the boy unbeknown to her husband (gone to India or somewhere else) "Conflit" is a long flashback:Claire who wants her child back again ,tries to kill her sister .She remembers ...This is moderately entertaining ,but at a time when the French cinema was at its peak,it's nothing but another melodrama.Starring Corinne Luchaire whose fate was tragic and Annie Ducaux,from La Comédie Française.

After "le Dernier Tournant " (the first version of ' the postman always rings twice" the part of Cora) and two other films ,Luchaire's career ended in 1940.Her father , a collaborator ,was shot at the Liberation.She died of TB in 1951;she was only 29.
