Trip Report Paris Vu Par Hollywood--An Observation and a Wish

Jump to last reply

While in Paris over Thanksgiving weekend, we dropped into the free exhibit, "Paris vu par Hollywood" at the Hotel de Ville. http://www.paris.fr/hollywood

As exhibits go, we didn't think the layout or content lent itself that well to its subject, but it was free, and we certainly had no complaints. And the scope of the exhibit, if not the detail, was certainly on task. We were taken from the silent movie age to the era of Woody Allen.

I certainly agree with the premise of the exhibit, that the American stereotype of Paris was shaped by Hollywood. And it is amazing that I had never really thought about that before.

Afterwards, I realized that for me personally, though, Audrey Hepburn (une Belgique),shaped my view of Paris. I wish the entire exhibit could have been on her.

Someone out there, make it happen! They had a few pieces of her wardrobe from "Charade" etc, but wouldn't it be lovely to see a room full of her movie costumes?
