In the scene above, off camera Jean-Pierre Léaud both praises and teases Chantal Goya’s nascent musical career.  Chantal Goya is also famous as a singer in real life.

As in other Godard films, including Vivre sa vie and Une femme mariée, we watch our film stars watch other film stars in a cinema scene. Chantal Goya, bottom joins Anna Karina and Macha Méril, top.

We also watch our film stars watch other film stars in cafés. Brigitte Bardot features in a silent cameo scene. Brigitte Bardot, who stars in Jean-Luc Godard’s Contempt, at one point reportedly earned more for the French economy than Renault cars.
