Golden Age Off-The-Shoulder Sweater
A Different Kind of Roman Holiday.
Rome was referred to as Hollywood on the Tiber during the Golden Age. If you weren’t shooting there, you wanted to be there.
So, while Peck watched Hepburn eat gelato on the Spanish Steps, Ava and Grace took their own Roman holiday while filming “Mogambo" on location in Africa.
If you don’t know Ava Gardner, enjoy getting to know her. She was brazenly unapologetic about… everything. It’s what made her so cataclysmically seductive. She wasn’t even a very good actress until she started “acting” like herself on screen. As it turns out, Ava being Ava was what the camera loved most.
Grace Kelly only acted in 11 films in 5 years. She won an Oscar, became a princess, was kind, warm, racier than everyone thought, and wickedly funny. When discovered sharing a sleeping bag with Clark Gable she quipped, “What else is there to do if you’re alone in a tent with Clark Gable?”
Maybe take a Roman Holiday?
