La Lumière D'En Face (Female and the Flesh) (The Light Across the Street)
Brigitte Bardot is the sensual gamine once more in Light Across the Street. She pouts and purrs her way through a romantic triangle involving herself, her injured truck driver husband, and a handsome interloper. The fun comes crashing to a halt when murder is committed. Released in France as La Lumiere d'en Face, this film was first issued to the US as The Flame and the Flesh. But this caused confusion with a 1954 Lana Turner vehicle of that name, hence the more antiseptic cognomen The Light Across the Street. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
