Drafts for the play "Beaumarchais" (1950) and for the film "Franklin et Beaumarchais", announced in 1949, both adapted by Edouard Molinaro for his film "Beaumarchais, l'insolent" (1995).

The manuscript for "Beaumarchais" is made up for the largest part of dialogue between Beaumarchais and the Chevalier d'Eon, also including the last stanza of the revolutionary song "Chant du départ", titled "Trois guerriers". The three typescript leaves cover a diaglogue between Beaumarchais and Louis XVI.

The manuscript for the film "Franklin et Beaumarchais", treating Franco-American relations and France's support of the recently-founded United States, consists mostly of the narrator's part.
