Did You Know?
… Swoosie Kurtz appeared in both Dangerous Liaisons and Cruel Intentions.
She played Cecile's mother in Dangerous Liaisons ...

... that Dangerous Liaisons' director (Stephen Frears), screenwriter (Christopher Hampton) and stars (Glenn Close and John Malkovich) reunited to make another period movie, Mary Reilly.
... The source material for these movies (and the play, opera, ballet, and televisions shows) was a French novel Les Liaisons dangeruses written in 1782 by Pierre Choderlos. You can read it in French or if you must the translated version.
... The wonderful character actress Mildred Natwick's last role was as Madame de Rosemonde in Dangerous Liaisons. Mildred Natwick had a film and theater career that spanned six decades. She was nominated for a Supporting Actress Academy Award for her role in Barefoot in the Park. She also appeared in two other movies that we feature her at Destination Hollywood, learn more in our She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and our Tribute to The Quiet Man.
... The costumes, oh the costumes. Dangerous Liaisons won the Academy Award for Best Costume Design. Valmont was nominated. (Cruel Intentions which was set in modern times did not have the magnificent costumes but it did win Best Kiss at the MTV Movie Awards)
This blogger has done a beautiful job of showcasing all the fabulous costumes.
... Dangerous Liaisons was shot entirely on location in France. The Chateau de Vincennes is one of the royal estates seen in the movie.
