Fame and Fortune in Switzerland

FAME AND FORTUNE IN SWITZERLAND - Profiles of Audrey Hepburn, Richard Burton, Yul Brynner and other celebrity residents. A number of well-known personalities were attracted to the shores of Lake Geneva in the second half of the twentieth century. Many of them knew each other well and their lives were intertwined. One or two fell deeply in love; others came to blows. Each faced more than one personal crisis, at least as dramatic as the situations they portrayed on screen or in print - Ian Fleming: his time in Geneva coloured the world of James Bond. Richard Burton: the locals called his home a 'bicoque' - a shack. Alistair MacLean: a neighbour who came to blows with Burton. Peter Ustinov: took a long personal journey to a wine-growing region. Audrey Hepburn: fled from kidnappers to her 'place of peace'. Yul Brynner: lived in splendour on Lake Geneva. William Holden: fell in love with Audrey Hepburn. Coco Chanel: lived in exile after the war with her German lover. Capucine: jumped from the eighth floor of her apartment building.
