Award winning French film director, screenwriter, and producer, Henri-Georges Clouzot's output spanned nearly four decades, with his most acclaimed films being his relentless suspense thrillers of the 1940s and 1950s, most notably 1953's "The Wages of Fear," one of the greatest thrillers ever made, which brought Clouzot international acclaim, and the groundbreaking 1955 psychological horror/thriller "Les Diaboliques," which was not only a major influence for Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 macabre masterpiece "Pscyho", but for generations of filmmakers that followed.
His 1956 documentary "The Mystery of Picasso," documenting the artist in the act of creating, was declared a national treasure by the French government.
