  • Beatrice Wood was of course the inspiration for many characters. When she lived in Paris she had concurrent affairs with Marcel Duchamp and Henri-Pierre Roché; the latter wrote the novel Jules et Jim, based on their three-way life together. The part of Catherine was played by the sparkling Jeanne Moreau.

    Famously she was also the inspiration for the character of Rose Dukater, a colourful character on James Cameron's film Titanic.
