Quote:
"Alexis Tremblay: Habitant was a great success and the [National Film Board of Canada] was invited to present a special screening to the Quebec Legislative Assembly. After the screening, [John] Grierson was supposed to present the filmmaker to the audience. Jane Marsh recalled, however, that Grierson became so involved in his own speech that he completely forgot she was there."
