->''"The making of ''Is Paris Burning?'' was, as so often happens, far more interesting than the finished product. The previous writer, an American Francophile, had all the underground French freedom fighters constantly shouting ''Vive la France!'' He must have worked at WarnerBrothers where films set in France were popular and the actors were either French or spoke their American English dialogue with heavy French accents...

My metaphysical arguments seldom won the day."''
