Baker & Taylor Explores the French actress' two lives--one as a sexy film star and one as an animal rights activist--through interviews with former husbands, former lovers, oldest friends, her current husband, and Bardot herself
Blackwell North Amer For more than forty years Brigitte Bardot has been an international phenomenon. Often acclaimed as one of the most beautiful women on earth, her legendary on-screen audacity and her off-screen private life both shocked and intrigued post World War II generations. Bardot's fame, which began with "And God Created Woman," carried her to mythical status and cinematic stardom. Pursued by lovesick fans and the media, Bardot was tormented in her attempt to separate her private life from her public one. After, according to the author, several attempted suicides, Brigitte Bardot retired from films and delved into the animal rights cause with zeal and devotion. Now, for the first time, a writer has been granted access to the woman behind the myth. Author Jeffrey Robinson has spoken with Brigitte Bardot's former husbands, former lovers, old friends, her current husband, and with Bardot herself. In this biography, Mr. Robinson lifts the veil that for years has obscured Bardot from the eyes of the public, giving the reader an intimate view of a remarkable woman. Bardot includes forty-five photographs as well as a comprehensive index and filmography listing Bardot's motion pictures, including "Act of Love," "Doctor at Sea," and "Viva Maria."
