Jean Daniel Pollet’ was 22 when he made his debut short movie, "Pourvu qu’on ait l’ivresse" in 1957.
It is a study of loneliness set in the dance hall of suburban Paris in the 50's starring Claude Melki,
a young unknown non-actor whom Pollet discovered and who would become the director’s acteur fétiche.
Melki was also the central charcter in Gala which was filmed 3 years later.
