France's most famous bombshells, Brigitte Bardot and Jeanne Moreau, "make an unbeatable comedy team" (Motion Picture Herald) in this "joyfully romantic fairy tale for adults!" (Life)! "Fast-moving, eye-catching and filled with sight gags" (Cue), this hysterical film from three-time OscarÂ(r)-nominated* director Louis Malle (My Dinner With Andre) and co-writer Jean-Claude Carriere satirizes everything from American westerns to revolutions, dictators, the Church, priesthood and even sex itself! When two women Â both named Maria Â unwittingly invent the striptease circa 1910, they become such a hit that enthusiastic audiences strip along with them! But when one of the Marias falls for a handsome revolutionary (George Hamilton), she finds that she has unwittingly embroiled the two of them in an armed peasant revolt! *1987: Original Screenplay, Au Revoir Les Enfants; 1981: Director, Atlantic City; 1972: Director, Murmur of the Heart
