A trip to the Hotel du Cap during Cannes is a festival must, and Jaeger-LeCoultre and Finch & Partners are adding a bit of film history to go with the stunning views.

The luxury watchmaker and corporate creative agency have partnered for the second edition of "The Art of Behind The Scenes," a photo exhibit curated by John Ingledew and featuring snaps from on-set shutterbugs.

The vernissage, opening May 13, features rare and exclusive works like Marilyn Monroe on the set of 1961's The Misfits and Alfred Hitchcock at work on 1946's Notorious. Also on view via Jaeger-LeCoultre: a vintage Compass camera from 1938.

"Haute Horlogerie and the worlds of cinema and photography share common values: both create dreams and a sense of wonder through aesthetic and technical mastery," says Jaeger-LeCoultre CEO Daniel Riedo.
