Description

Les Diaboliques (1955)


 


The French classic directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot and starring Simone Signoret, Vera Clouzet and Paul Meurisse is based on a novel by Pierre Bouleua (Planet of the Apes) and Thomas Narcejac (Vertigo).



The film blends elements of thriller and horror, with the plot focusing on a woman and the mistress of her husband who conspire to murder the man.  The body disappears and a number of strange incidents start to occur.



The film would be the tenth largest box office success of that year.  Considered by many as the closest thing to an Alfred Hitchcock film without being a Hitchcock film.  Interestingly enough, Hitchcock himself missed owning the rights of the book minutes before it was purchased.
