Personal Quote:

I myself spent nine years in an insane asylum and I never had the obsession of suicide, but I know that each conversation with a psychiatrist, every morning at the time of his visit, made me want to hang myself, realizing that I would not be able to cut his throat. See more »

Antonin Artaud, screenwriter of "La coquille et le clergyman", was enraged with Germaine Dulac, the female director who had made the film. At the première, that took place at the Salle des Ursulines, Artaud and a friend of his began to shout to each other: "Who did this film ?" "Madame Germaine Dulac did !" "And who is madame Dulac ?" "She's a cow !" See more »
