Manina, The Lighthouse-Keeper's Daughter on Blu-ray in November

18 September 2017

Eureka Entertainment to release Manina, The Lighthouse-Keeper’s Daughter [Manina... La fille sans voile], starring screen icon Brigitte Bardot in one of her first ever on-screen performances, on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in November.

A Parisian student, Gérard Morere, sets off to recover a lost treasure contained in a sunken Phoenician ship near an island off the coast of Corsica. With funds supplied by his fellow students, Gérard convinces a smuggler named Eric (played by Jess Franco favourite Howard Vernon) to be his transportation. Whilst diving for the treasure off the picturesque Lavezzi islands, Gérard gets to know Manina (Brigitte Bardot), the attractive daughter of the local lighthouse keeper…

Notable for being one of Bardot’s first on-screen performances, five years before her appearance in And God Created Woman launched her to super-stardom, Manina, The Lighthouse-Keeper’s Daughter is presented here for the first time ever on Blu-ray.
