The Cannes Film Festival is in full swing on the French Riviera right now but stars have been posing on La Croisette since the first festival in 1947. The heyday for me was the time of the late 1950's to early 1960's from when these photos were taken. While today's celebrities look pretty good, they can't hold a candle to the movie stars of the past. C'est magnifique!
