having all manner of sex while running from the cops. Eventually, the law catches up and Bardot dies in a hail of bullets. The production was plagued with problems. Everything from the weather (some of the worst in Spanish history) to thespian temperament (Boyd and Bardot loathed each other)

French; English subtitles.)
