According to at least one source, Behn was born in 1925.

Two others list "1980" as the novel's date.

I always thought of Behm's visibility as beginning with his co-writing credits on the movies "Charade' (1963) and "Help!" (1965). What would that be, one generation after Woolrich? Three?

Alas, I haven't seen the 1983, Claude Miller-directed French adaptation entitled "Mortelle radonnee." I do, however, have a fondness for the much-maligned later version, the one directed by Stephan ("Priscilla, Queen of the Desert") Elliott and starring Ashley Judd. A bit scatty around the edges, perhaps, but definitely fearless. Also contains lovely performances by Judd and the ever-trustable Genvieve Bujold.
