This picture tells a love story of the 1950s. A wife or perhaps a girlfriend is sadly saying goodbye as her husband or lover flies off to some far away place.
The plane is the legendary DC-3, the first profit generating trans-world airliner and a great part of aviation history. How many times have we seen pictures of 1950's movie stars standing, smiling and waving from the top step of a DC-3.
In her autobiography, Lauren Bacall tells a story of when she and Humphrey Bogart ordered a Thunderbird the very first day they rolled off the production line. Immediately they called their friends, movie stars and the like, to tell them to "come right over and see our beautiful new Thunderbird" and everyone answered: "We already bought one, too!"
The model for the woman in this piece is Authouart's wife.
This is the fifth in a series of six images entitled Voitures de Rêves.
