Movie Quote(s):
  • 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.
Movie Trivia:
  • 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.
  • Originally released in the US in an edited version titled "The Horror Chamber of Dr. Faustus" - an odd title considering there's no one named Dr. Faustus in the film.
