[on his movie Ophélia (1963)] I saw it recently and it was still execrable. See more »

Trivia:

During the shooting of Bluebeard (1963), producer Carlo Ponti was so appalled by Stéphane Audran's performance that he asked 'who's that slut who's playing Fernande?' Chabrol (who was already engaged to Audran) slapped Ponti in the face and screamed 'that's my woman!' The director and the actress married one year later. See more »
