Trivia

Originally Kim Novak was cast in the role of Catherine de Montfaucon. Filming began in the fall of 1965 in France. Near every scene had been filmed when Kim Novak fell from a horse and wasn't able to complete her scenes. Deborah Kerr was hired to take over and every scene that featured Miss Novak had to be re-shot with her replacement. See more »

Tout Va très Bien ,Madame la Marquise!
9 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

Madame la Marquise (Deborah Kerr) arrives in a desirable but gloomy French manor where everything is not exactly all right:

-Her husband (David Niven) is attending black masses .

-An archer (David Hemmings) is always killing doves.

-The hunter's sister (Sharon Tate: the brother and the sister are all dressed in black leather) is changing toads into doves.And she can stop the rain too.

-The marquise's children are performing acrobatics on the rampart walk.

-When you take a walk in the park,twelve hooded sinister-looking weirdos try to catch you.

This aside,Madame la Marquise ,everything's all right.

Jack Lee Thompson ,who made good adventure films (North West frontier)or war epics (Guns of Navarone) is less at ease in the horror and fantasy field ;casting Kerr and two children will make the audience inevitably think of "the innocents" by Jack Clayton (1961),but the two works are worlds apart artistically speaking.

However,Thompson's film is not bad ,he sometimes succeed in creating a mysterious misty atmosphere and the good cast (also including Flora Robson) and a black and white cinematography helps.
