Designing the Movies: HOW TO STEAL A MILLION (1966)
The trouble starts when a forged scupture winds up in a famous Paris museum. If experts determine that it is inauthentic, a legendary art collector's reputation will be tarnished. So his daughter Nicole (Audrey Hepburn) hires cat burglar Simon Dermott (Peter O'Toole) to steal the sculpture back before it's too late. The caper features diamonds by Cartier and a wardrobe by designer Hubert de Givenchy, whose personal and professional relationship with Hepburn began with Sabrina and continued through seven other features, including the iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
At the screening join host Nathalie Atkinson and guest Carolyn Rohaly, author of Military Chic, in conversation about Audrey Hepburn, fashion on film, and cinema’s most stylish heists
There will be door prizes!
