On Set of ‘The Legend of Frenchie King’, Terry O’Neill was doing a three part series on Brigitte Bardot. This was the last frame Terry had left to use on set. The Bardot cigar shot is considered to be one of his most iconic photographs and is part of the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery in London.
“I noticed that when the wind gusted there was the potential for a great picture. When the time came, I only had one frame left – one shot at it. But suddenly the wind swept her hair across her face, and it was a knock-out.” -Terry O’Neill
