In BB's case it's thoroughly true: a future star;she would become France 's most famous actress of all time ;but what's the point of casting her as an academy of music student ,for, as she is obviously dubbed for singing ,it sounds ridiculous for the audience who knows her recordings of ditties or (which is best) her pop songs written by the great Gainsbourg?She was never born to be an opera star.
This is a poor movie,with a thin screenplay ,the interest of which lies in its actors :a breeding -ground ;around Jean Marais ,who seems to be bored to death as a handsome music professor ,we encounter young Yves Robert (who would direct "la Guerre Des Boutons" (1961) " la Gloire De Mon Père" and its sequel),young Guy Bedos (a future famous stand-up comic and also a movie star in Robert's "Un Elephant Cà Trompe Enormément" and its sequel,Marielle Demongeot (who would change her first name for "Mylène")and more...Isabelle Pia was less lucky :her only memorable movie was Duvivier's "Marianne De Ma Jeunesse" (German and French versions).
I almost fell asleep halfway through ;Marc Allégret was more inspired with his drama school and his professor Louis Jouvet in "Entrée Des Artistes" (1938);one should note that the screenplay of that movie was written by Henri Jeanson and André Cayatte whereas "Futures Vedettes" is based on a Vicky Baum's novel adapted by ...Roger Vadim!
