Picture of the day: Pour le Maillot Jaune
In Petain's Nazi occupied France, cultural rallying points like this were a lot more than necessary. They were a lifeline. The bike was a symbol of lost freedom, liberté.
The plot? 30's film star Albert Prejean stars as the Tour de France favorite who does poorly in the early stages, and wants to quit. But thanks to the help of a journalist, he wins the maillot jaune. In the end, the hero loses the jersey, but wins the girl.
This film truly might be as lost. No sign on the web anywhere, not even a B&W photo.
