After the first half of the sixties,Christian-Jaque 's talent began to deteriorate .It was extraordinary he fell so quickly and so low after the brilliant works of the thirties ,forties ,fifties and even early sixties.
Probably made to capitalize on the success of Louis Malle's "Viva Maria" where BB met Jeanne Moreau in 1965, "Le petroleuses" is a slapstick comedy where two gorgeous cowgirls fight for an oilfield. In her memoirs,BB remembers she could not ride a horse,and she was terrified each time she had to get back into the saddle.Her screams (Mama!Mama!) used to make CC laugh until she cried.She did not like the film.I didn't either.
