Would a photograph of Brigitte Bardot playing cards with a cigarette dangling out of her mouth on the set of Viva Maria!, a 1965 comedy-adventure about two women who become socialist revolutionaries, make your day? What about Marilyn Monroe discussing sound with Clark Gable and director John Huston while filming 1960s The Misfits? Audrey Hepburn and Peter O’Toole tangled together in a broom closet for a scene in the 1966 heist comedy How to Steal a Million? Or young Michael Caine looking nothing like old Michael Caine sleeping in a lawn chair in Mallorca, Spain, on the set of Guy Green’s 1968 mystery film The Magus?
They’re all part of the second “Art of Behind the Scenes” photo exhibit displayed against a backdrop of the Mediterranean, showcased at Saturday’s 8th Annual Filmmaker Dinner in honor of the Cannes Film Festival, and hosted by Finch & Partners and Jaeger-Lecoutre — and we’re bringing you a slideshow of them simply because they’re great. Enjoy!
