Easy Rider: Dancin' in the Streets

"If these production members of the film Easy Rider were to go into their dance on any other street in the world, they might be considered crazy," reads the caption on the back of this shot taken at the Cannes International Film Festival in 1969, "but here at Cannes, onlookers realize they are 'acting out' the spirit of things that prevails during the International Film Festival now taking place."

Every May, Cannes does seem to foster exhibitionistic tendencies. Two more examples of the uninhibited Cannes spirit: left, Nicholson (again!) in 1974; and right, Sophia Loren in 1959.
