Last week I came home after a busy day and collapsed in front of the tv.  TCM (Turner Classic Movies) was on and Love in the Afternoon was on.  Audrey Hepburn, Gary Cooper (way too old for the part) and Maurice Chevalier in Paris.  Filmed in 1957 when I was just 15 years old.  How could I resist?  I had missed the first 40 minutes or so and was watching it without a lot of enthusiasm when suddenly something  made me sit up and rewind...  There was the street I lived on last October when I was in Paris. 

Here's part of it.  At 3:54 Gary Cooper is handed  Maurice's business card and the address is Rue Mallebranche.  I think it's now spelled with one L...  At 4:02 you can see my street and the stairs I climbed so many times to get back to my apartment.
