In Hollywood, Brigitte Bardot was considered too risqué to handle — erotica like Bardot's Cette sacrée gamine (1955) was not typical of the American cinema of the time, and it was considered acceptable at the box office so long as it was clearly labeled "European." --Sholem Stein

Naughty Girl is a 1956 French musical film starring Brigitte Bardot.

It was originally known as Cette sacrée gamine and Mam'zelle Pigalle.


Handsome cabaret entertainer Jean Clery is engaged to his psychiatrist, Lili. He sings at a nightclub owned by Paul Latour which is being used as a front for a gang of forgers.

Paul has been framed and decides to go to Switzerland to find out who is really behind this. He has a daughter, Brigitte, who is at finishing school and thinks he is a shipbuilder. Paul asks Jean to retrieve Brigitte from school and look after her for a few days so she is not caught up in the police investigation.

Jean collects Brigitte pretending to be her uncle and keeps her at his apartment. While there, Brigitte causes chaos, upsetting Jean's butler, starting a fire, getting arrested for swearing and winding up in prison, and causing troubles with Jean's engagement to Lili.

Eventually Brigitte and Jean fall in love and the real crooks are caught.
