Variously titled La Parisienne and Une
Parisienne, Parisienne, this Franco-Italian co-production is one of
Brigitte Bardot's best vehicles. The daughter of the Premier of
France (no, not DeGaulle!), La Bardot is married to Henri Vidal, the
premier's chief aide. When Vidal shows signs of straying from his
marital vows, Bardot decides to fight fire with fire.
She enchants visiting nobleman Charles
Boyer, who invites her to a romantic rendezvous on the Riviera. The
outraged Vidal tracks down the would-be lovers, only to discover
that nothing has happened-both Bardot and Boyer fell victim to head
colds, and spent the weekend sneezing rather than smooching.
