YMMV: Les Diaboliques
  • Fridge Logic: You'd think there'd be easier ways to give someone with a heart condition a heart attack.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The wife dies of a heart attack at the end. Five years later, the person playing the role died the same way.
  • Les Yay: Hinted at in the 1955 film, explicit in the 1996 film.
  • Paranoia Fuel
  • What Could Have Been: The original film was adapted from the novel Celle qui n'était plus, by Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac. Clouzot supposedly beat out Alfred Hitchcock for the movie rights.
    • Interestingly enough, Hitchcock would obtain the rights to another Boileau/Narcejac novel, D'entre les morts, a couple years later and make it into his film Vertigo.
