Diabolique 1955

Henri-Georges Clouzot helmed this icy masterwork of homicide and Grand Guignol suspense. Clouzot's real-life wife, Véra, portrays Christina Delasalle, ailing spouse of the sadistic headmaster (Paul Meurisse) of a moldering private boarding school, and sexy Simone Signoret plays his manhandled mistress. Together, the women mastermind and execute his murder, but their plan goes haywire when the corpse vanishes.

Sadly, 'Diabolique' has become known only to American audiences through the rather abysmal remake with Sharon Stone; the original has all but been forgotten. And that is a shame, since it is one of the most cleverly constructed thrillers ever made. It comes from French director Henri-Georges Clouzot, a contemporary of...
