Vale Mag Bodard - a remarkable film producer

Mag Bodard and Jacques Demy
Thanks to Peter Hourigan for drawing attention to the death a day or two ago of Mag Bodard one of the most remarkable film producers of the 20thcentury.

IMDb has her down as producer of 46 titles including, later in life, much television work. Among them are many landmark works of the cinema. She produced films by Jacques Demy, Agnes Varda, Robert Bresson, Alain Resnais, Andre Delvaux, Maurice Pialat, Claude Miller and many more. Her last credits were for a TV movie in 2006, when she was 91 years old. She died at the age of 103.

This below is just a partial listing of the films she produced in that extraordinary burst of French film-making in the sixties. 

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
Le Bonheur
Donkey Skin
Au Hasard, Balthazar
Un Femme Douce
Rendez-vous at Bray
One Night a Train
Je t’aime, je t’aime
