Roger Vadim Life

Roger Vadim (26 January 1928 – 11 February 2000) was a French screenwriter, film director, and producer, as well as an author, illustrator, and occasional actor.

And God Created Woman (1956), Barbarella (1968), and Pretty Maids All in a Row (1971) were among his best-known films.

Early life

In Paris, Vadim Vadim Plemiannikov (sometimes transliterated Plemiannikoff) was born. Igor Nikolaevich Plemiannikov, a White Russian military officer and pianist, had emigrated from the Russian Empire and became a naturalized French citizen, according to his father, Igor Nikolaevich Plemiannikov (ор лем-нников). He was a vice consul of France to Egypt stationed in Alexandria, and later posted as a consul to Mersin, Turkey. Marie-Antoinette (née Ardilouze), Vadim's mother, was a French actress. Despite that Vadim lived in Northern Africa and the Middle East in his youth, his father's death at the age of nine years old prompted the family to return to France, where his mother found work running a hostel in the French Alps, which was serving as a way station for Jews and other fugitives fleeing Nazism.

Vadim studied journalism and writing at the University of Paris, but not graduated.

Personal life

Vadim was well-known for his romances and marriages to beautiful actresses. He lived with Catherine Deneuve, a teenage girl by whom he had a child, Christian Vadim, before his marriage to Fonda. He appeared alongside American actress Margaret Markov and Cindy Pickett. Later, he cohabited with screenwriter Ann Biderman for many years, announcing their marriage in 1984, but the two never married.

He had two stepsons from his marriage to Schneider (younger sister of novelist Dominique Schneidre and heiress to the Schneider-Cruisot steel and arms company), as well as adult stepchildren from Barrault's first marriage to Daniel Toscan du Plantier, who was also a friend of Vadim's who called him "a happy man." He was someone whose life brought so much joy. The films simply reflected his joy." "Jane was the love of my father's life," Nathalie, his oldest daughter, told Fonda biographer Patricia Bosworth.


Roger Vadim Career

Film career

He became assistant to film director Marc Allégret, who he encountered when working at the Theatre Sarah Bernhardt and for whom he appeared on several screenplays at age 19. He was an assistant director on Allegret's Blanche Fury (1948), a commercially ineffective melodrama produced by Allegret for a British company in English.

Vadim was one of many writers on Allegret's French-British The Naked Heart (1950), starring Michèle Morgan, as well as serving as assistant director. It was shot both in French and English versions. Blackmailed (1951) was another film directed in England starring Mai Zetterling and Dirk Bogarde; Vadim was listed as one of the writers. He was also one of several writers on Allegation's, La demoiselle et son revenant (1952).

Vadim made the screenplay and analysis for Le gouffre de la Pierre Saint-Marti (1953), a famous romance with Jean Marais, Dany Robin, and Jeanne Moreau. Vadim wrote Loves of Three Queens (1954), with Hedy Lamarr.

Brigitte Bardot, a model actress, had started a friendship with Vadim. She was starring Jean Marais in a drama directed by Allegret, School for Love (1953), aka Futures Vendettes; Vadim wrote the script with Allegret. The film was a commercial disappointment.

However, Allegret, Bardot, and Vadim, Plucking the Daisy (1956), also known as Mam'selle Striptease, was a huge success at the French box office. With Bardot, Naughty Girl (1956), and Bardot also. Valiantim got support for his first film as director, thanks to this.

Vadim's first film as director was based on an original tale of his mother, And God Created Woman (1956). Bardot, Curt Jurgens, and Christian Marquand, a French actress, was not only a huge success in France, but also around the world, establishing Bardot as a world icon.

When you saw No Sun in Venice (1957), starring Françoise Arnoul and Marquand, which were much less popular than And God Created Women, Vadim continued to see it. Levy, Vadim, and Bardot had planned to film in Paris by Night with Frank Sinatra, but Bardot declined to spend months in the United States, and Sinatra felt the same about filming in France. Instead, Vadim made The Night Heaven Fell (1958), starring Bardot and Stephen Boyd. He was one of many writers on Allegret's hit comedy Be Beautiful But Shut Up (1958), starring Mylène Demongeot.

Vadims' next film was an adaptation of the book Les liaisons dangereuses (1959), which he wrote and directed. Moreau, Gérard Philipe (in his last film) and Annette Stroyberg, a Danish model who became Vain's second wife, appeared in the film. In France, the film became a big hit.

In the 1960 film Blood and Roses, Stroyberg appeared in the vampire film Blood and Roses. They split shortly after.

Vadim had reunited with Bardot for Please, Not Now! (1961) A famous comedy. He was one of many producers of the film The Seven Deadly Sins (1962).

Vadim began a relationship with a young Catherine Deneuve. She appeared in a section of the anthology film Tales of Paris (1962), which was written by Vadim and directed by Allelt. And Satan Calls the Turns (1962), which Vadim also directed, appeared in, And Satan Calls the Turns (1962).

Vadim enjoyed another google for Bardot, Love on a Pillow (1962), but she found less success with Nutty, Naughty Chateau (1963) starring Monica Vitti.

La Ronde (1964), Vadim's second attempt at a classic erotic text, was another attempt. At the time, he said, "When I make a picture of people's friendships, something sexual comes through; I can't help it." But sex has been a source of inspiration, the greatest inspiration since art has existed." Jane Fonda, a rising American actress who began a romantic relationship with Vadim, was one of the film's many stars.

The Game Is Over (1966), designed by Vadim, based on a book by Émile Zola. In France, it was a hit in French and English versions, but not so in the United States.

Barbarella (1968) wanted Fonda to appear in a science fiction sex comedy, and Dino de Laurentiis agreed that Vadim could direct. Fonda was directed by him and her brother Peter Fonda in a segment of the omnibus horror film Spirits of the Dead (1968).

Vadim would bring her back to the United States every time she made films there during his marriage to Fonda. Fonda and Fonda split up, and Vadim directed Pretty Maids (1971) for MGM, starring Rock Hudson and Angie Dickinson. It was a commercial flop.

Vadim returned to France. Hellé (1972), starring Gwen Welles, was a failure. He wrote and directed it. Don Juan, or If Don Juan Were a Woman (1973), Bardot's penultimate film and a commercial disappointment, was reunited with him.

Charlotte (1974) and Game of Seduction (1976) with Sylvia Kristel and Nathalie Delon were not particularly successful. In 1977, he directed Bonheur, impair et passe (1977), starring Danielle Darrieux.

Vadim based himself in the United States in the 1980s. In 1980, he directed Night Games (1980), where he attempted to make a star of Cindy Pickett, with whom he became romantically involved. In Canada, he directed The Hot Touch (1981), starring Marie-France Pisier. He wrote and directed the Surprise Party (1983), which took place in France. He produced episodes of Faerie Tale Theatre (1984) and Deadly Nightmares (1986).

Vadim tried to resurrect his former glory with a new version of And God Created Woman (1988), starring Rebecca de Mornay. It was very different from the original – it only used the same term – it failed both technically and commercially – it was very different from the original.

His remaining years were spent in television, where he supervised Safari (1991) and wrote and directed Amour fou (1993), starring Marie-Christine Barrault, who became his final wife. Vadim wrote and directed Le Petit tribu (1996), as well as its sequel Un coup de baguette magique (1997), which Vadim wrote and directed.
