    Background: MAY IS A BIG MONTH FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA.THIS IS THE MONTH OF THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL.LEADING ACTORS AND ACTRESSES POUR INTO THE SUN-DRENCHED RESORT FOR THE OCCASION.AND SO DO DOZENS OF YOUNG GIRLS - PRETTY AND UNKNOWN.

    WHILE THE STARS SIT IN AIR-CONDITIONED COMFORT WATCHING THE FILMS, THESE GIRLS - KNOWN AS THE BIKINI BRIGADE - SOAK UP THE SUN ON THE BEACH, HOPING TO CATCH THE FILM DIRECTOR'S EYE.SOME DO, SOME DON'T.BUT ALL OF THEM CATCH THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S EYE - AS THE FILM SUGGESTS.

    THIS YEAR THE BIKINI BRIGADE IS VERY MUCH IN THE SOMEWHAT LARGE SHADOW OF MR.ALFRED HITCHCOCK, THE DIRECTOR.CERTAINLY NO BEACH BEAUTY, HITCHCOCK HAS BEEN A GREAT FAVOURITE WITH THE CAMERAMEN.HE IS IN CANNES WITH HIS ENTRY "THE BIRDS," A HORROR FILM WHICH OPENED THE FESTIVAL LAST THURSDAY (MAY 9).

    ANOTHER STAR IN TOWN IS BETTE DAVIS, WHO IS ACCOMPANIED BY HER D DAUGHTER, SHE IS THERE FOR HER FILM "WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?" ALTOGETHER, 27 FILMS HAVE BEEN ENTERED - MOST OF THEM EMPHASIZING TERROR, HORROR, CRUELTY, VIOLENCE AND SADISM.

    CASINOS AND NIGHT CLUBS ARE DOING A ROARING TRADE.THEY EXPECT 20,000 BOTTLES OF CHAMPAGNE AND 15,000 BOTTLES OF WHISKY TO BE DRUNK DURING THE FORTNIGHT-LONG FESTIVAL.
