Brigitte Bardot

Brigitte Bardot

The very first movie I have ever seen in a theater is Roger Vadim's "And God Created Woman" starring Brigitte Bardot. At the time I was four years old, and the manager at our local movie theater refused to let me and my father in. My Dad yelled at the manager and told him that as a Father he wanted to take his son to see a Bardot film. After five or eight minutes of arguing back and forth, they finally let my Dad to bring yours truly to see his first film. Having Bardot as your first screen introduction to 'woman' was quite overwhelming. And to this day, I have been affected by that trip to the movie theater with my Dad.

And now we have this beautiful little Italian edition of Brigitte Bardot photos, movie posters, and e.p. jackets that fits in one hand. For years, I have been re-living the Bardot experience, and this book is an essential part of my collection. BB my true and only love!
