Movie Info

Because of star Brigitte Bardot's single fleeting disrobing scene in the French farce Please, Mr. Balzac!, the film was retitled Mademoiselle Striptease by one enterprising American distributor. Essentially, this is a harmless little escapade in which Bardot, escaping the strictures of her puritanical father, jumps off a train bound for a proper girls' school to seek her fortune in Paris. Here she moves in with her brother, a museum curator. The presence of the voluptuous Bardot causes most of her brother's stuffy co-workers to behave like Tex Avery's cartoon wolf. Co-written by director Yves Allegret and Roger Vadim, Mlle. Striptease was released in France as En Effeuillant la Marguerite; some English-language prints bear the title While Plucking the Daisy. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The innocuous comedy should satisfy the BB body watchers.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

The silly bon-bon of romantic travails and mistaken identities by Marc Allegret is an often overbearingly chauvinistic sex comedy that survives solely on Bebe's charms...

Its bastard grandchild may be the soft-core film, but this is exploitation of another era and it has an aesthetic. Silly -- ridiculous even -- but not bad.

F5 (Wichita, KS)

typical of the sexy French comedies of the 1950s, silly and slightly erotic, but never pushing any significant boundaries
