Jean-Piere Leaud is to the French New Wave what Ana Magnani was to Italian Neorealism and what John Wayne was to American Westerns. After making his screen debut at 13, Mr. Leaud is now 72, the subject of a retrospective at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. The series opens with Francois Traffaut's "The 400 Blows" (photo above) and ends with his most recent film, Albert Serra's "The Death of Louis XIV," on Friday March 31.
