Annette Strøyberg

1. – Jean Seberg, A bout de souffle/Breathless, France, 1960. Brigitte Bardot’s successor as Mme Roger Vadim was making a 1959 debut in his updated Les liaisons dangereuses, when he was visited by “a young man with a stammer, shy and, at the same time, sure of himself… He was going to make his first full-length film and wanted Annette to act in   it… He left me the screenplay – one and a half erasure-covered pages, which I read carefully without understanding a word. This strange young man had impressed me and I trusted him, instinctively. I advised Annette to accept his offer. She refused. A pity and her loss. The strange young man was called Jean-Luc Godard and his film was Breathless.”

2. – Gia Scala, The Guns of Navarone,   1961. She met with exiled US writer-producer Carl Foreman in London.   Everyone was interested in the second Mme Vadim. Until seeing her in films made by M Vadim.

3. – Michle Mercier, Angélique, marquise des anges,   France, 1964. At first the producers could only think of Vadim’s women: Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve, Jane Fonda, Annette Str¿yberg.
