Love Is my profession / In Case of Adversity

A Feature film by Claude Autant-Lara

Produced by Union Cinématographique Lyonnaise (UCIL), Productions Iena

Release in France : 17/09/1958

    Synopsis

    Bardot plays a nubile small-time thief named Yvette, who becomes the mistress of influential defense attorney Andre (Jean Gabin). Though Andre is able to shower Yvette with jewels and furs, he cannot "buy" her heart, and thus it is that it belongs to handsome young student Mazzetti (Franco Interlenghi). Alas, Yvette is no judge of human nature: attractive though Mazzetti can be, he has a dangerous-and deadly-side.
