Les Bonnes Femmes (1960), now regarded as one of Claude Chabrol's masterworks, was a critical and commercial failure when it was originally released. In her autobiography "Le Roman de ma vie", Bernadette Lafont remembers that, at one point during the movie premiere, a viewer furiously screamed that he wanted back the 5 francs he had paid for the ticket. Chabrol, who was sitting before him, turned around and gave them to him. Also, at the end of the screening, another spectator tried to get in a fist fight with the director. The two men were separated.

Author and playwright Françoise Sagan defended Claude Chabrol who had been accused of machismo with Les Bonnes Femmes (1960). The two later amused themselves by making the film Bluebeard (1963), a story based on a real life killer of women.
