SHE may have become an animal rights activist in later years, but French legend Brgitte Bardot once faced down a bull – or so it seems.

A collection of stills from the 1957 French-Italian film ‘The Night Heaven Fell’ show Bardot on location in southern Spain.

The iconic actress filmed in Mijas, Torremolinos, Alhaurin and El Chorro and caused quite a stir in what was then a sleepy backwater.
