Jeanne Moreau and François Truffaut had been friends since 1957 and had an on-and-off again relationship during the pre-production of Jules et Jim and the summer of 1964, which is when The Bride Wore Black was written as a tribute to Moreau, the woman he loved. They remained friends until Truffaut’s death in 1984. On their relationship at the time in 1964: 

We’re not too easy on each other, but we treat each other with great gentleness and tenderness, we’re a bit fearful of each other but not too much.

— François Truffaut (Truffaut: A Biography By Antoine de Baecque, Serge Toubiana)
