Brigitte Bardot and Rossana Podestà in HELEN OF TROY (1956)

Brigitte played a bit part in HELEN OF TROY while Rossana was the leading actress. Even though HOT wasn't a flop the costly film didn't have the success the studio wanted so Rossana's career in the US was basically over. In contrast, by the end of the 1950s Brigitte had become an internaional superstar after appearing in a couple films which catapulted her to stardom including AND GOD CREATED WOMAN.... Rossana was still a popular actress in those days but her fame never even reached the levels of Brigitte.
