Actor and director Eric von Stroheim, built a perfect replica of the Place du Casino in Hollywood at Universal Studios in 1922, glorifying one of the most amazing fascinations of the Principality. His attention to detail thoroughly captured the atmosphere of Monte-Carlo for the movie Foolish Wives (Folies de femmes).

The movie stirred up an American fascination with Monte-Carlo, thirty years before the legendary royal marriage that linked the two nations in April 1956, which was Monaco‘s own fairy tale.

Since then, Monaco has become the location of choice for many film directors searching for genuinely dreamlike and elegant settings.
