Which Way to the Front?

Andy Rector of KinoSlang just posted a translation of Serge Daney's 1971 review of Jerry Lewis' Which Way to the Front? along with a 1980 interview of Jerry Lewis by Serge Daney and Serge Toubiana.

  1. Bonjour M. Kretzschmar, je ne sais comment vous contacter, alors je passe par les commentaires. Je souhaitais vous faire part du site http://www.daney.net, que j'ai mis en ligne, suite à ma thèse sur les écrits de Serge Daney soutenue récemment (intitulée "Serge Daney: écrits critique 1962-1982. Exercices de relecture"). Je me suis dit qu'il serait intéressant de la "coupler" avec vos articles sur le site. Nous pourrons en reparler. Vous pouvez me contacter par l'intermédiaire du site si vous le souhaitez. Bien cordialement, Pierre Eugène

  4. There's a Daney translation in this link. I couldn't find it in this site (only a dead link of an excerpt) http://signododragao.blogspot.com.br/2006/04/like-all-old-couples-movies-and-tv.html?

  5. Good spot matheus.

    There are a few other translations on the blog you mention (see below). They seem to be from an unpublished translation project (CINEMA IN TRANSIT) and I think these translations need a bit of polishing before being published, hence why they are not here.
