- Doctor Génessier: The future, Madame, is something we should have started on a long time ago.
Louise: She trusts you this time. I trust you. Doctor Génessier: Me, I'm hoping, that's all.
Doctor Génessier: Smile. Not too much.
- Hubert de Givenchy created the gowns that Christiane wears throughout the movie.
The original title of this movie, in French, is mentioned in the chorus of the song "Eyes Without A Face" by Billy Idol, from the album "Rebel Yell" (1983).
Originally released in the US on double feature with the 1962 Japanese horror film The Manster.
Although the film passed European censors upon its original release in 1960, the films disturbing facial surgery scene still caused controversy.
