Viva Maria (1965)

Brigitte Bardot as "Maria I"

Gorgeous IRA operative Maria (Brigitte Bardot) flees the British authorities and finds herself in Mexico, where she meets a stunning woman also named Maria (Jeanne Moreau), a singer in a traveling circus. The new friends start a vaudeville act -- one that grows exponentially more popular after they incorporate striptease into their routine. When the singer Maria falls for a charismatic Mexican rebel, the girls leave the circus behind and recreate themselves as wild-eyed revolutionaries.
