In 1939, the International Film Festival was to be held in Cannes where numerous glamorous personalities were expected until Adolf Hitler decided to invade Poland. The festival cancelled, it was only in 1946 that the Cannes Film Festival was presented. From then, the event has combined glamour, emotion, scandal and sexy, evolving from a socialite venue to an international cinema celebration. The Cannes Film Festival was at the centre of several scandals such as Maurice Pialat's response to the public protesting against Under the Sun of Satan, in 1987 - ‘If you don’t like me, I can tell you I don’t like you neither’, Quentin Tarantino’s finger to the audience for Pulp Fiction, in 1994 or François Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard’s strike in solidarity with May 1968’s workers. The festival is also made of sensational red carpet scenes with its glamorous gowns, photographers boycotting Isabelle Adjani or Sophie Marceau having a dress accident and revealing her breast to the entire world. Yet what surely incarnates Cannes the best is its starlets, these dozens of young aspiring actresses posing on the beach, eager to become famous. In 1954, one of them, Simone Silva decided to remove her top and stand, her hands hiding her breast, in front of a playful Robert Mitchum. The image stirred on much controversy but the whole world discovered Cannes and the exciting legend was set.
