Bardot and Moreau invent the art of striptease, in a delirious comic Western.
It’s been neglected by posterity, but the buoyant humour, slapstick action and burlesqueinspired fashions of Malle’s comic Western hold up rather well – not that they need to, what with the builtin selling point of Jeanne Moreau and Brigitte Bardot as burlesque pioneers. When not whipping off their pantaloons, the pair also find time to spearhead a South American socialist revolution… HM With thanks to Park Circus
