Brigitte Bardot, Kirk Douglas, Cannes (1953)

Slightly less violent than “A Serbian Film” (yesterday’s post) are these gorgeous photos of Brigitte Bardot & Kirk Douglas. Apparently, they met up in Cannes in 1953, where these photos were shot.

During that year, they both starred in a film called “Un acte d’Amour”/“Act of Love” (1953, directed by Anatole Litvak). Douglas had the starring role of Robert Teller, a soldier looking to change his life after the liberation of Paris. Bardot had the small role of Mimi.

These photos are a generous contribution of Mr. Jose Salvador Gallegos. Many thanks to him!
