Tit-Coq is a Canadian film, directed by and Gratien Gélinas, and released in 1952. Gélinas' immensely popular play started life as a film script, but when he had difficulty with the financing he performed it on stage. By 1952 he was able to raise the money. Filmed essentially as it appeared on stage, it tells the story of Tit-coq (Gélinas), a shy, awkward French-Canadian soldier during World War II with an irreverent sense of humour who falls for the sister (Monique Miller) of a friend (Clément Latour). She promises to wait for him when he is sent to fight oversees, but she doesn’t. When Tit-coq returns he is once again alone in the world.
