One of the more controversial filmmakers to emerge from the vibrant French cinema of the 1960s, Roger Vadim directed such sensual features as " And God Created Woman" (1958), "Blood and Roses" (1960) and "Barbarella, Queen of the Galaxy" (1968). His movies were earmarked by their lush photography and taboo-skirting plotlines, but even more so by the yardage of flesh displayed by his stars, including Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Denueve and Jane Fonda, all of whom were also his offscreen romantic partners. Vadim was eclipsed in the 1970s by the rise of more explicit fare, which hobbled his brand of glossy erotica. By the time of his death in 2000, he was regarded as a museum piece by cineastes with fond memories of his sunny, sexy dramas.
