Bardot does Chaplin

Brigitte Bardot is photographed on break from filming Viva Maria! in Mexico 1965. According to Willi Frischauer's biography on the star, Bardot: an Intimate Biography, Bardot would perform splendid impersonations of the legendary Charlie Chaplin in order to pass the long months on the hot Mexico set, despite never seeing a Chaplin film. These are several photos from the rarely-seen shoot.



Photographer: James Hyman, London

It would have been nice had you credited these photos. My father, Orlando Suero, shot this set early one morning prompting Louis Malle to comment in disbelief, "Brigitte doesn't get up this early for anyone."
