Well, yes. All sorts of little bits and pieces in there.
When Truffaut met Godard
Financial Times, 21 January, 2011
Or perhaps as Truffault might have preferred:
Perhaps as we write, speak, play with images and ideas about Truffaut, M. Godard will be playing with the Truffault Google Doodle as well:
François Truffaut’s Google doodle is a modern memento mori
Google’s Doodle for 6 February 2013 – Truffaut would have been 80. Fun to imagine what it would be like to compare the filmography of Truffaut and Godard, both alive today. Would they have made friends again?

Several notes on Brody’s Godard biography…
which works from Martin’s article
Francois Truffaut & Auteur Theory
from Notes on Short film , which has done a set on auteur theory.
There is a link at the bottom to :
Truffaut’s manifesto: La Politique des Auteurs by Harry Tuttle
and the whole manifesto first published in Cahiers du Cinema in January 1954 translated into English:
A Certain Tendency of French Cinema
at My Gleanings.
The author of My Gleanings has created a bespoke blog that deals with A Certain Tendency, titled:

The French new wave: an artistic school By Michel Marie, Richard John Neupert [GoogleBook]
“The fictional character Antoine Doinel is, therefore, a mixture of two real people, François Truffaut and Jean-Pierre Leaud”.
source:Francois Truffaut by Juan Carlos [Senses of Cinema]
Anthea Hall wrote an article on French actor Jean-Pierre Léaud, A man lost in a celluloid identity, in The Sunday Telegraph (17 January, 1991) in which she examined how ‘Truffault had created an entire screen persona for Leaud..’. So far there is no evidence of an online version of this article, which is a pity. It could form a companion piece to several essays on Léaud/Truffault such as Philippa Hawker’s, Jean-Pierre Léaud:Unbearable Lightness [Senses of Cinema] and Because of Tenderness: Thoughts on the Performance of
Jean-Pierre Léaud by Rhys Graham [Senses of Cinema]
Here, the screen test Léaud did as a 14 year-old for Les Quatre Cent Coups.
In Lonesome Jim  directed by Steve Buscemi, starring Casey Affleck and Liv Tyler (watch it once/ forget it), Jim’s drug-dealing uncle tells Jim:
Because when you point a finger at somebody else, you’re pointing three at yourself and a thumb at the sky.
Admit it you tried it out and saw no thumb pointing to the sky.
There are plenty of fingers pointing on the web, but not much finger-pointing in films.
There is the finger pointing of Antoine Doinel in Truffaut’s films and other characters played by Jean-Pierre Leaud, for example Alexandre in La Maman et la Putain (The Mother and the Whore), dir. Jean Eustache, 1973, and Leaud in Truffaut’s, La Nuit Américaine  (Day for Night).
Real pointing usually includes thumb in the same direction as the index finger, or thumb holding the folded second finger and pretty much pointing the same the direction as the finger. Thumb to the sky tells a good story but it’s shooting.
I’ve also got a thing about the way electric torches are used in film. Why do they always hold them up in ‘raised fist salute’ instead of the more natural ‘watering the garden with a hose’ style? Head and shoulders framing. Medium shot fine. Close-up: torch can’t be seen.
You’d expect a man like that with the vision and energy for film to find a way to tap into the social networks beyond the grave!
