During the Occupation, this establishment was requisitioned to set up the German Chiefs of Staff headquarters. In this adaptation of the novel by Joseph Kessel, written in 1943, it’s here that Philippe Gerbier (Lino Ventura) is sent to be tortured for his “Gaullist” beliefs. He manages, all the same, to escape. Several other scenes were shot in this building, former luxury hotel from 1908 to 1936, under the name of the Majestic, before belonging to the French government until 2007. It’s here, in particular, that the Paris Peace Accords were signed, ending the Vietnam War. After having been sold and renovated, it once again found its initial function in 2014.
