September 20th,1946 - Cannes Film Festival.

Once a year the seductive allure of the French Riviera mixes with a mania for the silver screen in a grand international pageant known as the Cannes Film Festival. Convening there are fans, producers, critics, actors, cameramen - anybody who is somebody or anybody who wants to be viewed as somebody. Would be starlets, hoping to be discovered as a young Brigitte Bardot once was at Cannes, try to turn an eye away from established stars, which is not easy, considering there are so many. The festival intended to make its debut in 1939, but Adolf Hitler rudely nixed it by starting World War II. On September 20th, 1946, the first Cannes Film Festival did premiere and has remained an International Rave Revue ever since.
