Film adaptations


Pierre Louys' source novel was first made into a silent film in 1929 by French director Jacques de Baroncelli; but it is better known as the basis for Josef von Sternberg's 1935 classic, "The Devil is a Woman," which starred Marlene Dietrich. Other films made from Louys' book include a film by Julien Duvivier, starring Brigitte Bardot, That Obscure Object of Desire (1977) and "The Female.[1]"
