Audrey Hepburn, Vintage Photograph by Vincent Rossell, Paris, 1962

About

From the Personal collection of Audrey Hepburn Audrey Hepburn on the set of 'Paris When it Sizzles,' Paris, 1962 by Vincent Rossell Vintage gelatin silver print Photographer's credit stamp, Audrey Hepburn collection stamp and numerical notations verso From the Personal Collection of Audrey Hepburn, Christie's, September 2017 Born in Barcelona in 1924, Vincent Rossell worked as a set photographer on over 90 films from 1956 to 1998. He would photograph Audrey Hepburn during filming of 'Paris When It Sizzles' in Paris in the summer of 1962, along with 'Charade' later the same year and 'How To Steal A Million' in 1965. Following the success of 'Breakfast At Tiffany's,' Paramount asked screenwriter George Axelrod to come up with a script to reunite Hepburn with her old flame William Holden in Paris. Released in 1964, 'Paris When It Sizzles' followed the unfolding romance between playboy screenwriter Richard Benson [Holden] and savvy young secretary Gabrielle Simpson [Hepburn] as they scramble to finish his latest screenplay by acting out fantasy scenarios in a clever satire of the movie business.
