The Duraton Family (French: La famille Duraton) is a 1939 French comedy film directed by Christian Stengel and starring Noël-Noël, Jules Berry and Blanchette Brunoy.[1] [2] It was shot at the Billancourt Studios in Paris. The film's sets were designed by the art director Pierre Linzbach. It is based on a popular radio show of the same name. The plot blears similarities to the 1943 American film True to Life. Another French film inspired by the show The Duratons was released in 1955.


The car of Sammy Walter, an unscrupulous producer for the Paris Radio-Seine, breaks down in the countryside. He manages to find accommodation with the Martin family. He is so amused by their eccentric ways and conversations that he decides to start secretly broadcasting on air every evening, believing listeners will be fascinated by a real portrait of a village in Deep France. Although the show goes out the name The Duration Family, their true identity becomes obvious when indiscreet gossip about local affairs is broadcast.
