Anecdotes


The Bardot’s weakness for animals was evident in the shooting of ‘Jewelers of the Moonlight’, as the actress became infatuated with the donkey that appeared in the film. A platonic love as shown by the name she gave to the equine, Romeo, which she ended up buying from its owner when the scenes with the donkey were over and taking it to the hotel. This is how the director of the film and partner of the actress at that time, Roger Vadim, remembered it: “As the hotel management did not allow her to accommodate it in the garage, she took it up to her room. One morning she called for me. I found her in bed. The donkey was lying next to her, on top of the bedspread.
