Annie's post yesterday on purple reminded us of the fabulous purple staircase in the film How to Steal a Million, with Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole. The bold purple staircase runner and bannister rail covering is a focal point in the gilded Parisian mansion. How do you feel about the purple staircase?

Some crucial scenes in the film occur on and around the staircase. The film was made in 1966 so much of the setting is dated - in a good way, we think.
