IN MY WILDEST dreams I never thought I'd ever share the same bedroom as my youthful heart-throbs Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida and Jane Fonda, never mind more recent sex-godesses like Sharon Stone and Kim Basinger.
Yet here I am, in Suite 329 of the fabulous Carlton Hotel in Cannes, lying on the vast bed that is big enough to accommodate all six of those former occupants plus yours trewly at the same time (though it would be a very tight squeeze. Hopefully.) Yes, during nearly 60 years of the Cannes Film Festival, most of the great movie stars have stayed at some stage or another at what is now known as the Carlton InterContinental.
