  Les Diaboliques (1955) Dir. by H-G. Clouzot. With Simone Signoret, Vera Clouzot, and Charles Vanel. This was a film Hitchcock wanted to make, but the French got there first. The headmaster of a third-rate boarding-school is murdered by his wife and mistress - they drown him in the bath, and dump the body in a filthy swimming-pool. But the body goes missing, and all sorts of weird things happen after that, committed by the Diabolical ones. The is perhaps the only film which beats Hitchcock for surprises and suspense.
