Movie Inspiration: Une femme est une femme

Lately I've been inspired, a lot, by Anna Karina; her eyes so perfectly delineated; her beautiful face; and funny expressions; her fabulous Parisian style and natural acting.
Right now, she's my number 1 muse!

Une femme est une femme, such a lovely, fresh and funny film by Goddard, how I love it!

People always wonder why men go crazy when I walk by...
It's simple, really the truth is plain to see...
I've got breasts to make men holler and eyes like purple gems,
a little sailor's collar and panties made of...
I just hate it when it's early and I'm pulled out of the sack,
I just love it when someone strokes my back
I'm the kind who always says... When a fella says... C'mon, sweetie
Because when a guy gets amorous that's no time to make a fuss
I'm not the kind of girl to behave I'm really very cruel
But men never rant and rave

Because I am Beauti... ful...

Because I'd like to be in a musical comedy
starring Cyd Charisse and Gene Kelly.
Choreography... by Bob Fosse.

I bet you can't do everything I can.

Angela: Would you rather have fish or meat for dinner?
Angela: Emile!
Émile Récamier: Fish.
Angela: What would you have preferred if you were having meat?
Émile Récamier: I dunno. Veal.
Angela: And if you were to have beef rather than veal,
would you prefer a steak or a roast?

Émile Récamier: A steak.
Angela: And had you answered roast,
would you prefer it rare or well-done?
Émile Récamier: Rare.
Angela: [jump-cut to Angela returning with the well-done roast]

Well, honey, you’re out of luck. My roast beef’s a little overdone.

Nothing's more beautiful than a woman in tears.
We should boycott women who don't cry.
Modern women are stupid... when they try to elim...
That isn't it.
A woman who can't cry is stupid.
These modern women who try to imitate men.

I want a baby...

Angela: Got any change?
Alfred: Wanna hear a record? Which one?

"Itsy-Bitsy Bikini"?
Angela: No. Charles.
Alfred: Aznavour?

Émile: Angela, tu es infame.
Angela: Moi? Je ne suis pas infame. Je suis une femme.
