There was a great documentary on SBS the other night, And Brigitte Created Bardot. Honestly, I don’t remember anything unless I write it down so I forgot about it.
Luckily it’s online at http://www.sbs.com.au/, click on ‘Watch Full Episodes’ and it’s about three down. Hopefully you don’t have to be in Australia to watch it!
The footage of a younger BB is just lovely, there is a man who declares his intent to marry her & his parents fear that she would divorce him and take his money (despite having never met her!) and there is more backcombed hair than a beauty pageant. She has lived a turbulent life with multiple husbands, suicide attempts, a strained relationship with her only child and an intense focus on her sexualised image, she is such a fascinating woman and her dedication to animal welfare is incredible.
