In post Valentines Day New York, a local chain store has quantities of pretty heart shaped boxes of chocolates with the price tag "75% off." Apparently, nobody bought them. There must be a lot of disheartened romantics in this city. Serge Gainsbourg, 1961, sang of the futility of love's forsaken trying to recover a lost amour. Pictures illustrate Gainsbourg's women -- Brigitte Bardot Jane Birkin, Bambou, Whitney Houston, Vanessa Paradis, Catherine Deneuve, France Gall and others, beauties all and real heartbreakers.
