Summer Film Classics: The Fifties: Diabolique
Not rated, 114 min. Directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot. Starring Simone Signoret, Véra Clouzot and Paul Meurisse.
Although it's been remade a couple of times, no version comes close to replicating the tension and psychological thrills of this French original. It's the story of a distasteful schoolmaster who is murdered by both his wife and mistress. (Double bill: Strangers on a Train.)No current showings of this film.
