Oh, and here's a lovely rare picture of young BB from her movie Plucking the Daisy. What a lovely face and profile she really had! A lot of people dismiss BB as being just a sexy body with some nice hair attached but from this picture, you can really see how unique and alluring her facial features are.

BB never had the classically beautiful and traditional features of someone like, say, Grace Kelly-- and a lot of her features are actually quite funky, like her snubbed nose, defined nostrils, narrow eyes, full cheeks, defined chin, gapped teeth, overbite, and incredibly full lips. On another woman, any one of these individual features might be enough to overpower the rest of her face. But somehow, BB's face managed to coalesce these features and balance them out so everything hits you at once and even "overwhelming" things like her pouty lips suit her perfectly. How lovely!

Also, this random image I found on the tumblr of papierpoudre is currently cracking me the hell up. What the hell is going on with that cat?! Was she... was she trying to teach it to walk the tight-rope? Did she SUCCEED?! I'm so curious right now!

And look at these lovely rare photos, from inmyownvintage's tumblr. Anyone have a nicer view of that gorgeous pic of her in the red dress? So pretty! (And it's a carry-over from her brunette days too!)

Lol @ the cat picture. I'm unsure about the context. It looks like it comes from the same shoot as the picture below...Brigitte looks a bit different though. I really thought it was from a movie, but I can't find it. It must be a photoshoot then !

So I think I need to ask some kind, European-dwelling person to maybe download the vids and then send them to me... or just make caps themselves.

Anyone willing? I will totally return the favor by making caps of their favored BB movie for them. The lovely, gracious, gorgeous Fiammifero sent me a LOVELY set of BB movies so provided I have the movie in question, I will totally cap the hell out of it in return!

Vodkaster video link (in case anyone can download or cap the vids)

I wish I could help you ! I tried to use sites like Keepvid to extract the video but it didn't work. The only thing I can do is make more screencaps.

I love how lyrical you can be about BB, you're a wordsmith ! I totally agree, her facial features do not correspond to the canons of beauty, yet, she's strikingly gorgeous. In the end there's a perfect harmony and it all works out. However, her eyes don't look narrow to me.

OH MY GOD, what is going on in that picture?! Is BB trying to raise some sort of ARMY OF CATS?! ACROBATIC CATS?!?! CATS THAT ARE POWERFUL ENOUGH TO KILLS US IN OUR SLEEP?!?!?!

Sorry for the caps but I don't know whether I find that hilarious picture of her with four (?!) perfectly balanced (?!?!?!) cats more funny or alarming. Seriously, what is going on? This confuses me mightily. :p

And oh, I would love you for forever and a day if you (and other kind denizens of this site...) could make screen-caps of the vids on vodkaster.com for me! In fact, name me a BB movie you'd like to see cap and I'll do it, provided I have it in the huge bundle of movies the lovely Fiammi sent me previously! It's summer and I've hit a lull and I'm ready to recap for hours on end if need be. It's probably the reason I've made a new tumblr below dedicated to BB screen-caps, actually.

(I will not self-promote but if you search the brigitte bardot tag, you will unmistakeably find me, my caps, and my long-winded treatises...)

Oh, and here's a lovely pic from the lespetroleuses tumblr blog that corroborates our assertion that BB's features make her look beautifully balanced, despite being so extreme! Look at that elegant neck, that gracious profile... it's actually probably a good thing that all of her features are rather out-there... it makes her striking without being boring in the least!

^ Such a beautiful photo, thanks ff!
Unfortunately that French site doesn't work for me either. I really should get En cas on dvd as well... the copy I have is terrible quality.

Anyways, if you have any free capping-time, I'd love to see caps from Le Mepris (Contempt), as it's one of my all time favorite films ever!

Ah, does vodkaster.com's vids work for anyone on this forum? Sigh... they're so close and apparently have such beautiful vids... but no one can access them. This is the worst tease ever...

And yes, Le Mepris! I'll be happy to make some caps of that! I thought there might already have been caps on bardotdatabase.com but they only have caps for God Created Woman, Une Parsienne, La Verite, and La Bride Sur Le Cou. That's less I have to cap, then. :p

Actually, to sum up, I've already capped:
  1. Doctor at Sea
  2. Naughty Girl
  3. Plucking the Daisy
  4. La Lumiere d'en Face (partially)
  5. Night Heaven Fell (from youtube)
I need to put up already completed caps for:
  1. Her Bridal Night
  2. En Cas de Malheur (albeit in the low-fi rendition from daily motion)
I sincerely need to cap:
  1. La Lumiere d'en Face (need to cap the rest)
  2. Night Heaven Fell (now that I have a better copy)
  3. Contempt/Le Mepris
  4. Girl in the Bikini
  5. School for Love
I'm going to be busy, obviously!

Glad you liked the photo too! Now that I'm on tumblr more and more, I'm finding a treasure trove of beautiful photos to pick and choose from. I can't wait to start posting more up. Here's another, from the tumblr of lespetroleuses. What a gorgeous outfit BB has on! I love the polka-dots and the lush trim and the pretty bejeweled heels. And the pearls hanging through her pony-tail is just adorable-- very quirky and french! I just wish we could see what colors she's wearing. Anyone else have some photos from this occasion?

you're hilarious ! But that's right though, what is she doing ? I'll have to investigate :p


You have so many movies right now, have you watched them all ? Do you have any favorite so far ?


Alright I'm gonna do some screencaps of En Cas right now, watch this space !

It's vodkaster.com! Ciel's beautiful, beautiful caps are made from videos at Vodkaster.com! Please don't take them down!

And oh, Ciel, thank you for the lovely caps! Ah, they're exquisite, and so hi-def too! Seriously, the movie itself is a grimy little affair (I lucked out in that lovely Fiammi gave me a copy with subtitles) but Brigitte was as exquisite as her character was morally repulsive. So good to see more caps from this under-estimated movie. BB in her maid's outfit... yowza!

And now I don't have to buy the exorbitantly expensive DVD either. Yay!

As for my favorite movies of BB... ah, out of the ones I've seen, Viva Maria is a hilariously weird film that has to be seen to be believed, with some great comic set-pieces and music numbers... BB is almost unbearably gorgeous in both God Created Woman and Night Heaven Fell, although they're both pretty bad movies objectively... Come Dance with Me and La Parsienne are fun just for her scenes (and I pretty much skip over the other scenes anyway)... Plucking the Daisy features her as a really loveable protagonist, although her lover is so SLIMY in that movie... Doctor at Sea is great just for having a fun plot and giving her a lover that actually has good chemistry with her... Contempt is a great movie but I find it hard to watch over and over, since it's so weirdly realistic in its soul-killing bleakness...

And oh! La Lumiere! Perhaps the movie she looked MOST beautiful in, in my opinion. I wish this movie was more available, since she was so wonderful in it-- loving and vulnerable in ways she's rarely been in other films. I need to finish making caps of it!!!
