What bet­ter way to en­sure co­pi­ous press cov­er­age for your new film than with a state­ment ar­rival? And turn­ing up by boat to the Venice Film Fes­ti­val would have to rule the waves, ri­valled only by picture ops at that other sea­side film fes­ti­val—cannes.

Since its in­cep­tion in 1932, Venice—the world’s longestrun­ning film fes­ti­val—has lured many a Hol­ly­wood star to make a glitzy ap­pear­ance. For this year’s con­stel­la­tion, see p. 28.

1955 Why not? Bri­tish ac­tress Diana Dors steered a gon­dola in a mink bikini. 2013 Ge­orge Clooney took the wheel, pi­lot­ing Grav­ity co-star San­dra Bul­lock (far left) around the Vene­tian wa­ter­ways. 2004 Jada Pin­kett Smith was the rose be­tween thorns—and Col­lat­eral co-stars—tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx.

1966 En route to a screen­ing of The Wild An­gels, Peter Fonda caught a ride with sister Jane.

2016 Now that’s an Ar­rival— for the film’s co-stars Amy Adams and Jeremy Ren­ner.

2001 Ni­cole Kid­man ar­rived in style to pro­mote Moulin Rouge!
