Review:

Brigitte Bardot takes one of her first starring roles as a provincial girl who heads to Paris to become a novelist and, through a complicated (and often silly) set of misunderstandings, winds up competing in a striptease contest behind a mask and a pseudonym. The inevitable conflict occurs when her reporter boyfriend starts wooing both Bardots while charged with unmasking the mystery sexpot, climaxing in a door-slamming farce of mistaken identities. This frothy sex comedy, written by Bardot's husband and sometime director, Roger Vadim, and directed with minimal style but good humor by Marc Allegret, puts its assets right up front. Bardot plays the good girl with a bad girl's body, the innocent object of every man's lust, whose shyness makes her striptease act more tease than strip. In the background is a stream of cheesecake poses and almost nonchalant nudity from Bardot's fellow contestants (Bardot remains strategically covered but teasingly displayed in tight dresses and low necklines). Hardly a comedy classic, this lightweight bon-bon is an unapologetic product of the age of sexual double standards, largely buoyed by Bardot's charms and a solid cast of supporting comic actors. --Sean Axmaker
