Oh Yes I Cannes!

Whimsy  is never far away from this blog. But no visitor can argue that I don’t attempt to nourish your minds with some knowledge you may not know. Here is a lady I’d never heard of before today. She was an English actress named Simone Silva, and she wanted to make a big impression at the Cannes Film Festival in 1954. So, with a horrified Robert Mitchum (who recently celebrated his 100th birthday in the spirit world) looking on, she decided to whip ’em out. “I’ll do anything to become a star” was her mantra. These photos were big hits around the planet. Result? No Cannes do! – and she was asked to leave the festival. But she certainly succeeded in making an impression. Maybe even two. And now she is making her debut on highteadreams 63 years later. Magazine covers can be more entertaining than real life.
