Clouzot and Romy Schneider filmed together for the first time. Can 5 and the following contain the first exposed images; first moment of shared enthusiasm: the costume tryouts.
In 1955, Romy had become Sissi. Now, at 26, she was this young star who’d already worked with Welles, De Sica, Siodmak, and Visconti. For the general public, she was still the innocent Sissi. For Clouzot, she would be the sensual, alluring Odette, object of Marcel’s gaze and obsessive jealousy.

Random find: a music video of sorts featuring footage from Henri-Georges Clouzot’s unfinished 1964 film L'enfer (Inferno) and set to Lee Hazlewood singing My Autumn’s Done Come.

Oddly mesmerizing.
