!!Provides examples of:of:
* TheAllegedCar: Gaspard owns an actual alleged car, the Citroen 2CV. But it's Felicia's Rolls Royce that gets this treatment.
* [[GenderBlenderName Gender Blender Nickname]]: Felicia is often called Felix. She even calls herself that when monologuing.
* GratuitousEnglish / GratuitousItalian: Felicia uses both at different points in the film. She sings and yells in Italian, possibly as part of her troll routine, and asks a cow a question in English, because she stayed up all night and isn't really in her right mind.



* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Gaspard, to the despair of Felicia.

to:

* ItAmusedMe: Felicia's ''modus operandi'', really.
* KissingUnderTheInfluence: Gaspard's and Felicia's second kiss is under the effects of sleep-deprivation.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Gaspard, to the despair of Felicia.
* StalkerWithACrush: Felicia, though it's rather ambiguous whether she does the things she does out of genuine romantic interest or because she's really, really bored.
* {{Troll}}: Felicia, Felicia, ''Felicia''. A prime example is her second bath scene, in which Gaspard's son is sitting near her, and then she rises from the water to reveal that she was wearing her dress all along.
--->"Nyaah, nyaah, I kept my dress on! So naughty men won't see a thing!"
* UptightLovesWild: Gaspard resists and resists but ultimately gives in to
Felicia.

''The Bear and the Doll'' (original title: ''L'Ours et la Poupée'') is a 1970 romantic comedy French film directed by Michel Deville and starring Brigitte Bardot and Jean-Pierre Cassel.

Gaspard (Cassel) is a cellist who enjoys living quietly in the countryside with his son and three nieces. Felicia (Bardot) is a bon vivant who seduces and drops men for her own amusement. [[MeetCute They meet when they crash their cars.]] Some mild bickering later, they part ways, but Felicia is completely aghast that any man could be indifferent to her charms, so she decides that the most sensible course of action in this case is to stalk Gaspard, invade his house and heckle his nerves until he gives her the attention she wants. Needless to say, HilarityEnsues.

The American release of the DVD is dub-only, is in black-and-white (when the actual film is in color) and has blurry picture quality. You are advised to avoid it like the plague.
