Cannes Film Festival has just kicked off. All the glitz and glamour, the stars, the dresses, the yachts are all out in full force.

The 1950’s was a period of magic in Hollywood, with stars like Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor gracing the silver screen. I was watching Aldred Hitchcock’s To Catch  Thief the other day, which is set in the French Riviera,  and it made me realise that, although today the event is still one of the most glamours, it had a certain je ne said quoi, that it doesn’t have today. Perhaps it’s because the intent has ruined it’s mystery, and the stars seem less like God’s and Goddesses of silver screen like they used to…
