A photography exhibition showcasing behind-the-scenes images of great star at work at the UK's Pinewood and Shepperton Studios over the last 50 years will open at the Lincoln Center in New York City on Aug 14 and run through to Sept 5.

Entitled 'Capturing Film History In The Making', the exhibit compiled by Pinewood and Getty Images includes photographs of Stanley Kubrick on the set of Dr Strangelove, David Lean watching Alec Guinness being made-up to play Fagin in Oliver Twist, Peter Sellers in costume as Inspector Clouseau and Charlie Chaplin directing his daughter Geraldine and Marlon Brando in A Countess From Hong Kong.

Pinewood and Shepperton are now merged in The Pinewood Group.

Support for the exhibition comes from the UK Film Council US. 'It is a very visual and poignant reminder to us all what impact the UK has had on the international film industry throughout the years,' said UK Film Council US executive director about the exhibit.
