French cinema seemed to have trouble taking full advantage of Bardot's drawing power
With the film "Babette s'en va-t-en guerre," directed by Christian Jaque, Brigitte attempted to break out of the mold that her previous roles had forged...
Here she played opposite Jacques Charrier, with their ensuing real-life romance and marriage serving to fuel the fires of their already overwhelming publicity
Though Bardot wore a uniform in this movie, the idea as a whole was not enough to carry the film
It was, in fact, Francis Blanche playing a Nazi officer who triumphed
Later that year, Brigitte and Michel Boisrond met again to film a detective yarn called "Voulez-vous danser avec moi?" Bardot had become an international star, but, unfortunately, French cinema seemed to have trouble taking full advantage of her drawing power
