Things People Do - FrancoisTruffaut's Grave; Montmartre Cemetery; Paris

At the grave of French filmmaker Francois Truffaut (born 1932; died 1984) some people, referencing his film "The Last Metro," pay homage by putting their Metro tickets in an urn at the foot of his marker.  (The film's title refers to the need, in Nazi-occupied Paris, to catch the last train home so as not to break the curfew set by the occupiers.)
