Audrey Hepburn on the Paramount lot with Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, 1953.
According to photographer Bob Willoughby, Audrey had just finished Roman Holiday and Paramount was eager to spread publicity about their new star. “They whisked her over to the dressing room of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, absolute kings of showbiz at the time, to take some photos.” Apparently Dean and Jerry hadn’t been informed that a photo shoot had been arranged. Jerry, constant perfectionist and workaholic, wasn’t very happy about the PR department interrupting his work without notice. As a result, photos taken near the beginning of the session show a rather stubborn and annoyed Jerry with Dean trying to coax a smile out of him. Near the end of the shoot, however, the three had become fast friends and were having a great time playing around together for the camera.
