This lovely Japanese promo poster is for Brigitte Bardot’s screwball romantic comedy Cette sacrée gamine, also known as Mam’zelle Pigalle and The Naughty Girl. Bardot plays a precocious young woman whose forger father must flee the cops and leaves her in the care of a nightclub performer. She promptly wrecks her new guardian’s engagement and generally turns his life into a shambles, but irresistibly so, which of course leads to love. It’s probably Bardot’s cutest movie, which means it’s well worth a viewing. It premiered in Japan today in 1958.
