A vast collection of cinema photos on exhibit at Gstaad Palace.

For decades, foreign production companies have shot films in Switzerland to take advantage of its unique backdrop or reinvented it in studio. From July 20 to August 3 at the Gstaad Palace, BACKDROP SWITZERLAND EXPO presents photos from the archives of the Swiss Cinematheque, vintage posters, a fun selfie corner as well as a short documentary by the SRG SSR on the premiere of The Return Of The Pink Panther. Indeed, this film classic was partly shot at the Gstaad Palace and a lavish gala evening was organised for its world premiere with stars like Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Julie Andrews and of course Peter Sellers.
