- Roger Boussinot L'encyclopédie du cinéma 1980 - Volume 1 - Page 316 "Dix films, pour la seule année 1946, sont bâtis sur des idées ou des scénarios de Jacques Companeez. Et dans ces dix films, il y a les maudits, probablement le chef-d'œuvre de René Clément."
- Françoise Audé Ciné-modèles cinéma d'elles.: Situations de femmes dans le cinéma 1981 Page 77 "[Michel Deville]... Il ne se lance alors pas seul dans l'aventure : avec lui, une scénariste-dialoguiste brillante, Nina Companeez. Elle était la fille de Jacques Companeez qui fut le scénariste de Jacques Becker. Elle était, en outre, monteuse."
