    As a member of 'Les Six', the musician Georges Auric (1899-1983) imbued his music with an energetic classical style, and composed for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, notably Les Facheux, (1924) for which Georges Braque designed the set. Auric collaborated with Cocteau on the musical scores for several films, including Blood of a Poet (1930) and La Belle et la Bete (1946). Auric went on to become well known for his work on the Ealing comedies Passport to Pimlico (1949) and The Lavender Hill Mob (1951). His prolific output also included the classic films Moulin Rouge (1952) and Roman Holiday (1953), starring Audrey Hepburn.
