Retro Wednesday.....







The movie didn't hit the theaters in Flint Michigan until 1957.
Of course I couldn't get in, but just seeing the ad's drove me crazy.
Bardot was THE biggest sex icon in the world after Marilyn Monroe died.
She was my first fantasy girl.....(sigh)
That lasted for years, until I spotted this recent photo.
I just hate it when fantasies are DASHED!!!!!

Did you know I was named for an actress? I was! I was named after the actress Gail Russell whom my parents both thought the world of. BUT some smart azz nurse in the hospital thought it was a funny idea to spell my name Gale like the wind because I was born on the 4th of July and came out screaming! My mom didn't know of the mistake till I got my first driver license and they had it spelled Gale on there. and I signed it Gail because that was the way I was taught. Now Mr Gab and I have fun with our names! Seeing as Gale is also the boys way of spelling and Mr Gabs true name is a female name! (well there are a few Guys with his name)

ReBelle said...

I can't belive she is THAT old. She looks ancient....and you think of Deneuve and Loren both still utterly amazing despite many images you see which are terribly photoshopped. There is a cover shot of Deneuve on Aerosports de Paris. My gosh, she looks 35 and better than she did at 35!

She's not aged well has she?

Revenge is a dish best served....OLD! HAHAHA to all the pretty skinny bitches in high school who are struggling now to be thin and still look twenty something.
Yes, I am being "catty much"!

ok, so age has caught up with her but i'd rather see that than some really obvious plastic surgery. i mean really, would you want her looking like joan rivers does now or even mary tyler moore? ::shudders::

hope said...

Well, at least she's not a botox mess.

She's almost 80. I bet she has twinkly eyes and a great laugh! But time isn't equally charitable, that's for sure. I mean, Sophia Loren was born the same year (both are 78)

I'd say the last picture is her most authentic and the therefore the most beautiful.
