The great French director Louis Malle made this goofy comedy in Mexico which has a brief snake cameo. Brigitte Bardot is the daughter of an Irish bomb-maker who takes her around the world to set off bombs to kill English people. They are in Central America in 1907 when he is shot by English soldiers and signals her to blow up a bridge while he's still on it. She is running away from the explosion when she sees a Boa Constrictor on a tree that frightens her. More frightening for us is wondering if we have to see the French sex goddess dressed as a boy for the whole movie, but that is rectified later in the movie when she goes on to join Jeanne Moreau's travelling circus act as a singer and dancer. When Bardot's costume tears, she takes it off, and the crowd goes wild. Maria and Maria then become big stars after they turn the act into a strip tease. Of course, given the turn-of-the-century women's undergarment situation, they finish the strip tease wearing more clothing than most women today wear when they're fully dressed. After their circus wagons stumble into a revolution trying to oust a dictator, Maria and Maria become the leaders of the revolution and Bardot's weapons expertise and bomb-making skills once again come in handy.
