50 Years Ago At Cannes Film Festival 1962

Famous stars from around the world gather for the prestigious event. Here are a few shots of the glitz and glamour from a 1962 issue of LIFE magazine.

Philomène Toulouse (above), an art student from Paris who wants to be in pictures, was the only one who thought to bring a fox. She was roundly criticized by animal lovers for keeping the fox leashed and using him to gain publicity. “But,” said Philomène, “I’ve even found him a lady fox in a nearby hotel. They’re madly in love.” Philomène and the fox got big play from cameramen but nary a nibble from moviemakers.

Stunning images. Wish I had lived through the 60's and 70's. Best era's by far.
