Brigitte Bardot is one of the most beautiful woman of the 20 century. She was an international sex symbol who starred in a series of hit films such as The Girl in the Bikini, Un acte d’amour (1953), Dear Brigitte (1965) and more that 70 films.
This is a video fragments you can see her in famous Et Dieu Créa la Femme (1956) where she is so young and so incredible charming.
Here is a short biography taken from www.imdb.com:
Brigitte Bardot was born on September 28, 1934, in Paris, France. Her father had an engineering degree and worked with his father in the family business. Her mother was 14 years younger than Brigitte’s father and they married in 1933. Brigitte’s mother encouraged her daughter to take up music and dance, and she proved to be very adept at it. By the time she was 15 Brigitte was trying a modeling career, and found herself in the French magazine “Elle”. Her incredible beauty readily apparent, Brigitte next tried films. In 1952 she appeared on screen for the first time as Javotte Lemoine in Le trou normand (1952). Two more films followed and it was also the same year she married Roger Vadim. The two had known each other years earlier and she wanted to marry him when she was 17, but her parents quashed any marriage plans until she turned 18. The union lasted only five years. Capitalizing on her success in French films, she made her first US production in 1953 in Un acte d’amour (1953) with Kirk Douglas, but she continued to make films in France. Brigitte’s explosive sexuality took the US by storm, and the effect she had on millions of American men who hadn’t seen a woman like her in a long, long time–if ever–was electric. took the US by storm, her explosive sexuality being unlike anything seen in the US since the days of the “flapper” in the 1920s. rise to the phrase “sex kitten” and fascination of her in the US consisted of magazines photographs and dubbed over French films–good, bad or indifferent, her films drew audiences–mainly men–into theaters like lemmings. In 1965 she appeared as herself in the American-made Dear Brigitte (1965) with James Stewart (she only appeared in one scene). Just before she turned 40, Brigitte retired from movies after filming L’histoire très bonne et très joyeuse de Colinot Trousse-Chemise (1973).
No doubt this film must be watched by everyone. Just watch and turn the facts you are discovering over in your mind.
Partly Cloudy, the latest short film from Pixar, has found its way online. Screenings of the film will precede Pixar’s upcoming Cannes-selected blockbuster Up (released in Australia in September) but those who can’t wait can watch it here. Like all Pixar’s shorts, Partly Cloudy is an adorable little tale, based on the premise that everybody knows where babies come from – storks! – but nobody knows where storks get them from.
They are in fact sculpted and brought to life by cloud people (duh) such as Gus (pictured) but instead of creating the cute things his cloud colleagues make (babies, kittens, puppies etc) Gus can only create dangerous babies like crocodiles, porcupines and rams. This poses delivery challenges for his stork partner, Peck, who longs for a sweeter dealer. It’s a class act: thoughtfully made and gorgeously animated.
