The Night Heaven Fell Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This [[Performer~P3899~Brigitte Bardot~brigittebardot]] vehicle is better known by its American title, The Night Heaven Fell. [[Performer~P3899~Bardot~brigittebardot]] plays a young, sensuous French girl named Ursula, who arrives in a Spanish mountain community to visit her aunt ([[Performer~P72697~Alida Valli~alidavalli]]) and uncle ([[Performer~P52682~Pepe Nieto~pepenieto]]). It isn't long before uncle is killed by handsome stranger Lamberto ([[Performer~P7818~Stephen Boyd~stephenboyd]]). Against her better judgement, Ursula falls in love with Lamberto, and helps him to elude the authorities-thereby beating her Aunt (who also loves Lamberto) to the punch . The Night Heaven Fell was the third feature-length directorial effort of [[Performer~P3899~Bardot~brigittebardot]]'s then-husband [[Performer~P114955~Roger Vadim~rogervadim]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
