It's everyone's favorite French sex kitten--Brigitte Bardot.
It was the late 50's and while Hollywood's movies had grown tame, Europe's
cinema was the place to go to see something with a bit more flesh. Case
in point was Bardot and her breakthrough film ...And
God Created Woman. Film scholars called it the "art house"
movement, but bachelors could care less what it was called as long as it
featured exotic beauties such as Bardot.
Much has been written
about Bardot, both in the popular and academic press. She
was the embodiment of the sultry nymphet, one who wasn't afraid to say
what was on her mind, but at the same time she was the lost little girl
who was overwhelmed by her own sexuality. It's this duality that will forever
endear her to pop culture fans across the world. Nowadays, as most people
know, she is a recluse in France, spending all her time with her animal
rights organization called the Brigitte Bardot Foundation.
