1932: Film director François Truffaut, one of the founders of the French New Wave, is born in Paris, France. Some of Truffaut's best known films include "The 400 Blows," "Jules and Jim," "Day for Night" and "The Last Metro." He also appeared as an actor in several films, mostly in his own films, but also notably played scientist Claude Lacombe in Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." He's seen here on the right in a scene from "Day for Night," which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 1973, playing a fictional director.
