There's a story behind
each and every picture.
the whole story about this Sophia Loren shot...
If you didn't take it too seriously it could be a lot of fun playing
their game. At the May 1958 [Cannes] Festival, Mike Todd and Elizabeth
Taylor were there to promote "Around the World in Eighty Days." They
wanted to have a private "soiree" for invited guests only, and
absolutely no press. Todd even put 10 caged lions at the entrance to
keep gate crashers away.
I put on a black suit and
bow tie to give it a try. Instead of going to the front door I went
around to the kitchen entrance, where there were no guards. I took some
pictures of the cooks, got their names, etc., then followed a waiter
into the dining room.
