PS: It was interesting going to this outdoor exhibition, of photographs about French film maker Henri-Georges Clouzot (1907 - 1977) in his home city, Niort, central west France. Henri-Georges Clouzot made some remarkably strong films. I remember seeing his powerful “The Wages of Fear” screened at the London Film School many years ago when I was a young film student. Clouzot, straight after completing “Wages of Fear” optioned the screenplay rights for Les Diaboliques preventing Alfred Hitchcock from making the film, no matter it helped inspire Hitchcock's “Psycho”. And a young man does not forget Brigitte Bardot in “The Truth” (French: La Vérité).
