IN the French film “And God Created Woman,” which came to the Paris yesterday, Exhibit A is “B. B.,” the currently beloved Brigitte Bardot. This round and voluptuous little French miss is put on spectacular display and is rather brazenly ogled from every allowable point of view. She is looked at in slacks and sweaters, in shorts and Bikini bathing suits. She wears a bedsheet on two or three occasions, and, once, she shows behind a thin screen in the nude. What’s more, she moves herself in a fashion that fully accentuates her charms. She is undeniably a creation of superlative craftsmanship. NY Times.
