Godard for completists - Une Femme Coquette

I'm not sure how long this little title has been around but a burst of Facebook notifications say its recently discovered - the very first film by Jean-Luc Godard made way back in 1955. The titles say "Jean-Luc Godard presente"  and the director credit is coyly allocated to J-LG's critical pseudonym Hans Lucas. The great man himself makes an appearance beginning with a characteristic little skip out of the way of a car which rather reminds you of the way he buzzed and danced around as the assistant director in the rooftop scenes in Le Mepris.

But for completists and anybody else not reading Facebook posts at random, here it is on YouTube, an English subtitled copy of Une Femme Coquette.
  Thanks to all the cinephiles who leapt on this treasure instantly.
