On November 2 Christie’s is staging a stunning photographs sale in London featuring some of our favorite famous faces.
One of our top picks is Tazio Secciaroli’s snap of Gregory Peck and Sophia Loren on the set of their film Arabesque in 1966.
The story of international intrigue involves a university professor, an Arab prime minister, a ruthless businessman, a beautiful spy, and some curious hieroglyphics.

Estimated at about $1,900 it’s hardly the most expensive image on offer but we think it’s one of the coolest.
Also on the extremely reasonable side are some of Sam Levin’s famous pix of Brigitte Bardot including this one dubbed The Towel Session from 1959.
We’re not entirely sire how said towel avoided catching on fire….
