Anna Karina

Posted in Uncategorized by maddaATU on January 23, 2011

She may not be as well known as some movie icons, but Anna Karina, queen of French cinema’s New Wave, is arguably the most enchanting woman ever to hit celluloid. All bangs and black cat-eyes, she might be described as the art-house brunette to Bardot’s blonde bombshell. Coco Chanel played an unlikely role in the discovery of this Paris import by way of Denmark (read on for details), but Karina will forever be linked with Jean-Luc Godard. The perennially controversial and stubble-faced director, who received an honorary Oscar in November, laid eyes on the actress in a Palmolive commercial and cast her in his 1960 flick Le Petit Soldat. The two eventually married, although happily ever after wasn’t in the script.
