Parkinson first photographed Hepburn in Gigi in New York and here photographed her on location in Italy during the filming of King Vidor's War and Peace (1956), an adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's novel directed by King Vidor in which Hepburn played Natasha and her husband Mel Ferrer (who she married the previous year) played Prince Andrei.
