J is for JULIA (1977)

I was 18 years old when I saw this film, I was a student in Lyon France and I think that was one of the movies that made me so intrigued by all personal stories in  WW II that led to my research and writing of The Bridge of Deaths

Julia is a 1977 drama film directed by Fred Zinnemann, from a screenplay by Alvin Sargent. It is based on Lillian Hellman's book Pentimento, a chapter of which purports to tell the story of her relationship with an alleged lifelong friend, "Julia," who fought against the Nazis in the years prior to World War II. The film in DeLuxe Color was produced by Richard Roth, with Julien Derode as executive producer and Tom Pevsner as associate producer.
