Juliette (unfinished Jess Franco film; 1970)
|Film still of Juliette (frequently mistaken as a still from She Killed in Ecstasy).|
Juliette is an unfinished 1970 Jess Franco film starring Soledad Miranda, Paul Muller, and Alberto Dalbés. The eponymous protagonist is a beautiful woman who seduces and murders men. She goes to a church to pray for forgiveness for her crimes, where she is noticed by a local man who is drawn to her religious fervor. The man rents a room next to Juliette's apartment and, through a keyhole, witnesses her crimes unfold. Eventually, the two meet and the story ends in death and blood.
Tragically, on the 18th of August 1970, Soledad Miranda was killed in a car accident in Portugal. Only 40 minutes of Juliette was shot and the project was ultimately cancelled.
The unfinished footage is rumoured to have been in Franco's possession, but not much is known beyond that.
