Personal Quote:

I started as an editor, which is very important. I am always in the cutting room. I think you can't write properly unless you are an editor. I always have the cutting in mind when I'm shooting. Very often I look at my watch and say it's good for twenty seconds and not more.

Trivia:

Alfred Hitchcock considered Clouzot a very serious rival for the title of Master of Suspense, and Psycho (1960) was put into production because Hitchcock specifically intended to outdo Diabolique (1955). See more »
