Photo taken backstage at the Oscars, March 21st, 1956. Hepburn is waiting to announce the Best Picture Oscar winner, Marty, and Kelly is waiting to present the Best Actor award to Ernest Borgnine for his role in the same film. For whatever reason, it's fascinating to me to see these two iconic women together. Even more so because the photograph is of a quiet backstage moment.
This photograph was taken less than a month before Kelly left Hollywood to marry Prince Rainier III of Monaco.
