Victor Vitry vs. Sasha Guitry
The correct spelling of the name of Victor Vitry's Terran double is, of course, Guitry. The son of Lucien Guitry, an actor of the French theatre in St. Petersburg, Sasha Guitry was born in VN's home city. The tsar Alexander III was his god-father (hence "Sasha," the Russian diminutive of Alexander). "Ceux de chez nous" ("Those of us") was Sasha Guitry's first (rather than "last") film.
