Personal Quote:

I saw 'Snow 'White' at least 10 times between 1937 and 1940 and I think it influenced my work, a little. It was a good horror film. The death of the witch was the best thing Disney ever did. 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 »
