She began her film career in 1957, but Michèle Mercier didn't become an international favorite until Shoot the Piano Player (1960)--a classic François Truffaut film that would be memorable even without Michèle being resplendent in her raw roundness. Her topless scene was pretty daring for the time, but Michèle was just getting warmed up, as seen when her hot body wowed French audiences in Technicolor in Angélique, marquise des anges (1964). This was the first of several films based on the popular book series about a noblewoman in the court of Louis XIV. Michèle's melons really worked the period costumes, too--and she still managed to get exceptionally naked by 1964 standards. (Keep in mind that the Angélique books were generally considered fun for the whole family.) Michèle remains associated with the Angélique character, but we also find her unforgettable in Lady Hamilton -- Zwischen Schmach und Liebe (1968), in which she reclined to show off an amazing naked bod. Michèle now only makes the occasional film appearance, but she's seen aging to great effect in La Rumbera (1998).
