Watch: Marianne Faithfull Sings for Godard in ‘Made in U.S.A.’

Watch: Marianne Faithfull Sings for Godard in 'Made in U.S.A.'

In this clip from the exuberantly colorful 1966 noir-of-sorts, starring sexy French screen icons Anna Karina and Jean-Pierre Léaud, the beautiful and blonde Marianne Faithfull sings "As Tears Go By," her 1964 tune written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

The plaintive single was a smash for the Stones and Faithfull separately, and apparently an object of fascination for Godard. Two years after directing "Made in U.S.A.," he would go on to shoot The Rolling Stones in his documentary "Sympathy for the Devil" (1968).
