Henri-Georges Clouzot with his wife Véra Clouzot in 1953

Henri-Georges Clouzot is an award-winning French film director, writer and producer. He has contributed to many projects as either the writer, director, producer, or a combination of the three.

His first feature film was the 1942 mystery The Murderer Lives at Number 21 (French: L'Assassin Habite au 21), which featured Clouzot as both screenwriter and director.[1] After the release of The Raven (French: Le Corbeau), Clouzot found himself barred from making movies until 1947.[2] Clouzot was later embraced by international critics and audiences following the release of The Wages of Fear (French: Le Salaire de la Peur) and Diabolique (French: Les Diaboliques).[2]

Clouzot's declining health interfered with his later work and made it necessary to abandon his production of L'Enfer. He released his final film La Prisonnière in 1966.[2] L'Enfer's script was filmed by Claude Chabrol in 1994.[3]
