In the 1950s, Bluebeard was the favourite tale of good little girls, one of whom is Catherine, who loves to frighten her older sister Marie-Anne by reading this fairy tale to her until she starts to cry. Catherine also puts herself in the fairy tale by becoming Princess Marie-Catherine, Bluebeard's last wife.
His last wife is the only lucky one. She escapes the fate of all those he hanged before her because she is the virgin princess that the ogre cannot decide whether to kill. His hesitation will be his downfall and allow the virgin to get the head of the giant.
