In 1929, Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali shocked tout le monde
with their surrealist provocation Un Chien Andalou
. The next year they were at it again with the feature-length L'Age d'Or
(pictured above)—Buñuel's feature directorial debut and one of the first French films with a soundtrack. L'Age d'Or
would be Buñuel and Dali's last collaboration—they differed politically (Buñuel at the time a Communist supporter and Dali a proponent of European aristocracy) and religiously (Dali protested Buñuel's attacks on the Church). Also, it didn't help that Buñuel and Dali's future wife, Gala, despised each other.
