We say those who don’t learn history are doomed to not repeat it.
Thus, today’s slideshow-borne history lesson: A Visual Retrospective of the Cannes Film Festival.
The festival gets under way this week. The slideshow (which is right here) gets under way as soon as you enter it.
So prepare to study 69 years’ worth of antics by the likes of Brigitte Bardot, Michael Caine and Blake Lively.
Study very carefully.
