On Wednesday afernoon, the rain stopped and my friend Di Mackey and I watched a French crew filming scenes at a hotel/restaurant on a side street near Notre Dame. The footage will be part of an upcoming movie. Note the vintage clothing, newspaper and stacked wooden crates of mid-20th-century liquor and seltzer bottles.
The film crew discussing an upcoming scene. The vintage car and bicycles are props for the production. Alas, I had only my little pocket camera with me!
Taking a break to smoke. A few minutes later, the girl wearing white pumps crossed the street towards Notre Dame. Her pumps appeared too large and probably rubbed blisters on her heels, as she was walking with difficulty. Of course women in the '40s would have been wearing stockings, except when they were difficult to find during World War II.
