Summer’s Last Gasp

audrey hepburn billy wilderSummer isn’t quite over yet, despite the cool, wet weather in Paris the past two weeks. There are many events for the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Paris (August 1944), including a free sound and light show tomorrow evening commemorating the historic events followed by live dancing and a Bal Populaire (dance party) on the esplanade of the Hôtel de Ville. If the weather still sucks, the Musée Galliera (host of the 1950s French fashion shows) has partnered with the Grand Action Cinema to show big-screen classics every Friday night through the end of October, including Monkey Business (Cary Grant, Marilyn Monroe, Ginger Rogers), Roman Holiday (Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn), Vincent Minelli’s Designing Women (with Lauren Bacall, RIP), and Roger Vadim’s And God Created Woman (Brigitte Bardot), The films are in English with French subtitles.
