Vintage Photos of Brigitte Bardot on the Film Set of “Le Mépris” (1963)

Le Mépris or Contempt is a 1963 French-Italian drama film written and directed by Jean-Luc Godard, based on the Italian novel Il disprezzo (A Ghost at Noon) by Alberto Moravia.

It stars Brigitte Bardot as Camille Javal, the wife of Paul Javal (Michel Piccoli), a young French playwright who has found commercial success in Rome, and accepts an offer from vulgar American producer Jeremy Prokosch (Jack Palance) to rework the script for German director Fritz Lang’s screen adaptation of The Odyssey.
